Circular Economy / March 27, 2023

EPR for packaging in Europe - best practice for municipal waste management. Can Poland benefit from them?

Meeting the challenge of creating a circular economy requires industry and governments to take strategic action to create effective systems for collecting, sorting and recycling post-consumer waste. Many European countries are working on waste management and extended producer responsibility (EPR) schemes to increase their efficiency and optimise their performance. One EPR scheme that is currently under review concerns beverage packaging.
With regard to Poland and other countries, we see the need to redesign the existing EPR system in order to improve collection and recycling rates for packaging waste. Therefore, during our discussion we want to look for solutions and best practices that can provide a solid base for the creation of an effective EPR system for packaging based on country specifics, existing EPR tools, developed infrastructure and legal framework.
