Breaking the Fee-ver:

Maintaining EPR for Packaging in the Face of Rising Costs

 Wednesday, March 19, 2014

1:30 - 3:00 p.m. EDT

EPR packaging fees worldwide are being re-evaluated and adjusted upward to reflect the difficulty in managing certain materials. That approach, combined with a further penalty in the form of disruptor fees for materials that contaminate the recycling stream, are resulting in higher recycling rates, which—in turn—are having a direct impact on the cost of goods. In this webinar, Victor Bell—President of Environmental Packaging International (EPI)—discusses trends in many countries to increase the number of packaging/material categories for EPR reporting. He also presents an overview of the newly published ISO technical report on substances and materials, which many EPR programs are using to encourage better packaging design through disruptor fees and increased material categories.
