Packaging recovery organisations are facing many challenges that impact their operations and business model, and consequently impact producers who rely on these schemes to comply with their legal obligations under Extended Producer Responsibility for packaging. This panel discussion will explore whether Deposit Return Schemes are the only way for beverage producers to comply with their new legal obligations and what the impact of the introduction of DRS is on existing EPR systems.
- Is the introduction of DRS really necessary, and if so, on what exactly?
- Will the introduction of DRS have a detrimental effect on the effectiveness and efficiency of
existing EPR systems?
