How our EPR plays an Effective role in Reducing Plastic Pollution?
Today plastic pollution has been recognized as a global crisis. These issues have touched Oceans, Wildlife, Freshwater and more. To address this crisis, Recycling Hub aims to stop the flow of plastics into nature by eliminating unnecessary plastic items, recycling and recovering, double reusing and ensuring the remaining plastic is sourced responsibly.
We have identified EPR (Extended Producer Responsibility) as a critical tool that can track record to hold manufactured for plastic products and packaging with encouraging holistic design in any business sector. Therefore, to reduce the plastic leakage to nature, we have added 65 new SAFAI SATHI to our network in the last two months.
Recycling Hub, to date, has conducted more than four events in different location to spread awareness on waste segregation at the source. By explaining the main reason to the customer about plastic leakage into the environment, we offered the best solutions to overcome them. At this time, there is 93% of the waste dumped somewhere in the environment. Also, there is no economic incentive for a product manufacturer to reduce the use of plastic.
We have come up with the best solution using EPR (Extended Producer Responsibility). EPR mainly is defined as shifting the responsibility of end-of-life management. It uses two goals in establishing the kind of system you need:
- We Reduce the burden of placing a shared physical or financial responsibility for waste management.
- We produce an incentive for the manufacturer to design low impact products.
With adding a significant increase in adoption in EPR since a decade, we are using the latest EPR methods for collection, sorting and recycling the waste. To date, we have collected nearly 1500 metric tons of plastic waste from different source using efficient separate collection schemes. Potentially, we have a team that knows about using the best waste management techniques. We are committed to the design of packaging, recycling and support of packaging waste collection. Our EPR scheme has been developed as an inclusive governance model playing an essential role to help the infrastructure build-up.
With the increasing use of plastic, it’s to fight against this pandemic; therefore, for safety purpose, we have distributed nearly 200 safety kits to our Safai Sathis. Our Extended Producer Responsibility programs ensure to maintain responsibility for single-use plastic products throughout the whole life cycle of all products. Using the legislative tool, we guarantee to provide sustainable design with holding manufacturer responsible for single-use plastic throughout the collection, recycling and recovery of products.
The pandemic has revealed the importance of the short-term use of plastic and help people feel safe. But we don’t have time to slow reckoning on the long-term issue of plastic waste. Therefore, our professionals are ready to adopt a variety of preventative policy by taking care of legislative measures and addressing the problem’s scale.
Let’s have a look at how we help to reduce pollution. The plastic waste in landfill has reached the end of its life as it cannot be recycled anymore. In this stage, it’s become essential to break the plastic waste into crude oil such as petrochemical. Chemical recycle waste involves process like pyrolysis and distillation, which helps to convert plastic waste into petrochemicals. In plastic waste, it adds moisture and soil. Whereas chemical recycling adds, generate by-products like soil and wastewater. We use mainly two streams like EPR and Petrochemical products manufactured from plastic waste, to support chemical recycling. Polymer waste is generated during manufacturing and selling various products that include consumer goods, tires, etc. Later our EPR team assign responsibility to the manufacturing team for further recycling. EPR lies in a closed-loop approach to managing products where waste generates product used to produce other product. The approach our team used ensures that the price of the product is safe disposal. It reduces the environmental impact of the waste as it leads to lower-cost production of a new product. EPR shift the waste burden from the government to product manufacturer.
Recycling Hub follows one mantra that is Refuse – Reduce – Reuse – Recycle – Recover – Dispose. Using an effective EPR policy, we mainly emphasize mechanism and reduce plastic waste through a design change. It helps in promoting alternative materials for packaging with aiming to stop excessive production. We are pleased that we are recognized as one of the best waste management companies that offer essential roles in increasing collection rates and reducing contamination in residential recycling programs.
