Rekart
Plastic Waste EPR

According to the Plastic Waste Management Rules 2016, all producers, brand owners, resellers, importers, and manufacturers of plastic bear responsibility for the safe disposal of plastic post-consumer use or 'end of life'. To facilitate proper disposal, producers can engage in collaborations with Waste Management Agencies (WMAs) to establish distinct collection channels for their Plastic Waste.

Rekart offers an end-to-end solution for Plastic Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR), ensuring compliance with EPR Guidelines and targets. Through our EPR Portal, we streamline the process of EPR Registration for plastic waste, providing a transparent and traceable model endorsed by Urban Local Bodies (ULBs) / Municipalities. With over 250 leading brands in the Indian market as partners, Rekart has established collaborations with numerous ULBs across India.

Plastic Waste EPR

Our comprehensive approach to EPR includes partnerships with 37+ Cement factories and Waste-to-Energy Plants for the collection and disposal of municipality plastic waste. By adhering to EPR Compliance for Plastic Waste Management, we contribute significantly to reducing plastic pollution. Moreover, our EPR Registration services for plastic waste ensure that producers obtain the necessary Plastic EPR certificates efficiently.

For producers interested in initiating the Process of EPR Registration for PIBOS/PWPS, Rekart provides expertise and support every step of the way. We can effectively address the challenges of plastic waste management and promote sustainable practices in the industry.
