EPR Service

EPR Registration and Compliance

What is EPR

EPR stands for extended producers’ responsibility i.e brand owners, importers, producers, or manufacturers are responsible for the treatment and disposal of their post-consumer products. They are required to maintain a proper EPR Action plan to collect back the plastic waste generated due to their products.

EXTENDED PRODUCERS RESPONSIBILITY

EPR Services

Extended producer responsibility, refers to the responsibility for the management of the disposal of products by producers once those products are designated as no longer useful by consumers. Our main objective is to develop an effective and efficient system that takes care of the collection, segregation, and transportation of the material to the waste disposal facility which is approved by the SPCB and CPCB as a PRO Agency. These materials are also used in cement kilns, pyrolysis, for road construction and recycling centers, on the basis of their quality and price.

Items and Areas where plastic is used

  • From a comb to a milk packet, when we look around ourselves, we are able to find many things made of plastic, completely or partially.
  • Nearly 90% of the things we use today are made up of plastic or contain components made of plastic, eg, Banners, pouches, flex, straws, wrappers and much more.
  • Most of the junk food and packaged food we consume is wrapped in plastic which is not only non-recyclable but also harmful for one’s health.

Impacts of plastic on Water, Soil, Air

  • Dumping of plastic can deteriorate soil by taking away its organic properties.
  • The presence of micro plastics in soil affects the life of earthworms and other species.
  • Impacts underground water quality imparts harmful plastic pieces in the water which are then consumed by humans on a daily basis.
  • 8 million metric tonnes of plastic go to the ocean every year, majorly affecting the marine life.

Did you know

Quantity of Plastic Waste Generated daily in India

  • Approximately 26000 tons of plastic waste is generated in India every day and not even half of it gets recycled thus escaping into the environment.
  • Plastic waste accounts for 8% of the total solid waste generated in India annually.
  • The major waste-generating cities in India are Delhi, followed by Kolkata and Ahmedabad

Facts on the usage of plastic

  • As per reports, the production of plastic in India increased from 1600 million metric tonnes approx. in 2014-2015 to 1700 metric tonnes in 2017-2018.
  • Around 73% of beach litter is Plastic and is increasing day-by-day

Solve the plastic problem in India

Tackling the plastic problem is utterly important. Cities in India need a very strict and robust plastic waste management system so as to protect their environment. This involves the following steps which can collectively solve the plastic waste problem in the country.

EPR Services – Plastic Waste Collection and Disposal Process

The plastic waste generated in bulk production is extremely harmful to the environment, especially when it is dumped into the grounds or pollution-causing garbage dumps. Hence it is necessary to treat and recycle it before it causes harm and deteriorates the soil and its livelihood. Therefore, following EPR rules is mandatory and requires complete cooperation.

By providing Plastic EPR Services, our aim is to help organizations meet obligations under PWM Rules by building the Extended producer responsibility plan and working on modalities for the waste collection system.

Looking at the alarming volumes of MLP waste (Multi-Layered Plastic), the Plastic Waste Management (PWM) Rules were passed in 2016 making it a mandate to phase out all non-recyclable and multi-layered plastic (MLPs) within 2 years. In the following years “multi-layered plastic which is non-recyclable or non-energy recoverable or with no alternate use” were banned.

All Bulk producers and packaging brand owners must meet their market target by channeling the plastic (recyclable or non-recyclable multilayer plastic (MLP)) and be responsible for recycling it, which means that all the generated waste is recycled under conditions that display no harm to the environment.
