Breaking the Fee-ver: Maintaining EPR for Packaging in the Face of Rising Costs

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 EPI-sponsored webinar, Victor Bell will discuss trends in the increasing number of EPR material categories. He will also present an overview of the newly published ISO technical report on substances and materials, which may impede efforts to use EPR to encourage better packaging materials through disruptor fees.
