26th Jan 2023
Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) will see the full cost of managing household waste shift to producers, in the hope of delivering a more circular economy for packaging where greater quantities of recyclable waste are reprocessed into valuable, high-quality secondary resources. This is a reform of the existing Packaging Waste Regulations and organisations affected by the new EPR will need to start collecting packaging data from 1st January 2023.
What you need to do?
Already closing the loop on your waste?
Many of Duo’s clients are already taking responsibility for their packaging waste by collecting and recycling it as part of Duo’s closed loop recycling scheme. If you take the packaging back and have it reprocessed, and have evidence of that reprocessing, you can use that as part of your obligation.
Together we are working towards a circular economy where we eliminate what we don’t need, innovate towards new packaging products and business models and keeping waste material in the economy and out of the environment. To learn how Duo can help your organisation contribute to a circular economy contact +44 0161 203 5767 or email email@example.com
