How to support reuse and preparing for reuse through EPR?
Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) is being promoted as a key market-based instrument to help implement EU waste legislation, including full application of the waste hierarchy.
However, aside from a handful of cases, EPR has seldom been used as a tool to promote reuse and preparing for reuse activities.
With the EU Commission’s proposed rules for implementing EPR schemes currently being extensively discussed by the European Parliament and Council, this EPR Club lunch debate will focus on specific measures and current good practices that can help extend product lifetimes, develop reuse networks and create local jobs.
The discussion will be centred around interventions from representatives of social enterprises, local authorities, EPR schemes and manufacturers. Particular focus will be on electronic appliances, textiles and furniture.
