What is EPR?
Extended Producer Responsibility/EPR refers to the responsibility of the management of disposal of those products once labeled as no longer useful by the consumers. Our main objective is to develop an easy and effective system that takes care of collection, segregation, and transportation of the material to the waste disposal facility which is approved by MPCB and CPCB as a professional agencies.
These materials are also used in Cement Kilns, pyrolysis, road construction, and recycling center on the basis of their quality.
Plastic Waste Management Process.
- We began our journey of commencing Collection & Disposals of MLP & Non-MLP Plastic Waste.
- The collected Plastic waste is now sent to the Collection and Segregation point.
- Here the waste is segregated into two types – Recyclable and Non-recyclable waste manually.
- The recyclable material is then further sent to the recycling facility for turning into reusable products.
- The Non-recyclable waste is then sent to the cement kilns or is used in road construction.
Extended Producers Responsibility Rules:
Plastic Waste Management (PWM) Rules, 2016
- Rule 9 states the Extended Producer Responsibilities of the Producer/Brand Owner. It also states that producers need to put in place systems for collection and disposal of the waste due to their products.
- Rule 6 states the responsibilities of local bodies for ensuring proper collection, processing, and disposal of plastic waste.
- Rule 13 defines obligations of reporting and registration by various stakeholders through forms appended to the rules.
E-Waste Management Rules:
- Rules under Chapter II define the responsibilities of various stakeholders for electronic and electrical waste management.
- Chapter III Rule 13 states the obligation of producers obtains authorization under EPR compliance.
What is Post-Consumer waste?
Post-consumer waste is the waste that the individuals routinely discard either in a waste receptacle or a dump. Post-consumer bottles are one of the most common waste. It can be recycled into useful products. The collection process is the first and one of the most important parts of the recycling process.
Depending on the action taken by the consumers and the way they dispose of plastic waste in Recycle bins, send it to landfills, or incinerated it. The impact of landfills and incineration is significant on the environment. Waste releases gases and toxins from improper decomposition without oxygen and burning at low temperatures. Post-consumer waste must be recycled or reused to prevent tons of waste from polluting our environment.
How to register for EPR Certificate?
EPR License Registration Process:
- The process starts with CPCB /SPCB
- The authorized waste management agency collects the agreed volume of post-customer plastic waste
- The waste collection agency will present relevant documents for proof of waste collection activity
- On behalf of PIBOM’s agency will submit a quarterly report to CPCB.
- After completion of the activity, the final report will be submitted by the agency to PIBOM’
