Extended Producer Responsibility Example

Continuing on the theme of Extended Producer Responsibility – container take-back programs,are a simple example of EPR that has been effective in many places. In most cases, consumers will pay a small deposit when products are sold (usually beverages), which is refunded when the packaging waste is returned to the retailer. This places a legal responsibility on the retailer to take back containers for recycling or reuse, and there are currently ten states in the US implementing container deposit laws set out by local government. Rundle Eco Services Ltd. also supports ERP by collecting waste on behalf of producers so that it does not end up in the landfill. Check out the article below to learn more!
