Plastic Waste EPR
As per the regulations issued in Plastic Waste Management Rules 2016 all producers, brand owners, resellers, importers manufacturers of plastic are liable for safe disposal post-consumer use or 'end of life'. Thus, to ensure the right disposal is achieved producers may collaborate with Waste Management Agency (WMA) in order to establish a distinctive collection channel for their Plastic Waste. This is further done by WMA's tie ups with Urban Local Bodies (ULBs) / Municipalities. Rekart is already a trusted name working with a very transparent and traceable ULB endorsed model. We have collaborated with numerous ULBs across India for over 88 leading brands in Indian Markets. We also have tie ups with 37+ Cement factories and Waste to Energy Plant to collect and dispose off municipality plastic waste.
