Position Paper | EPR Schemes

Recycling creates value by turning waste into recycled materials while saving energy and GHG emissions compared to extracting new raw materials. Over the last decades, Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) Schemes for different waste streams have been set up to shift the polluter-pays principle from governments, local authorities, and end-consumers to producers placing products on the market. The recent multiplication of EPR Schemes pose a serious risk to the recycling industry. Learn more about these challenges by downloading below the EuRIC position paper on EPR Schemes.
