What is Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR)
Extended Producer Responsibility is a policy framework designed to shift the burden of waste management and disposal from taxpayers and local authorities to the producers of goods and packaging. It encourages manufacturers and importers to take responsibility for the entire lifecycle of their products, from production to disposal. This practically means that there will be new costs for businesses.
How Multitank helps you save EPR costs
Multitank, as reusable packaging, does not enter the waste stream, therefore it can save a remarkable amount of costs placed by EPR regulations.
The breakout of reuse requirement is a step in the right direction. Businesses will have to review the packaging they are using and move towards circular models that eliminate waste production.
Costs implemented by EPR regulations
Recycling and disposal costs will be placed on businesses, according to their packaging production or turnover.
