Reuse of rigid plastic packaging material has been mandated in the guidelines to reduce the use of fresh plastic material for packaging. Each manufactures, recycles, produces or producers of plastic products or waste in their gram panchayat should complete an EPR for Plastic Waste Management.


If a producer sells 100 metric tonnes of polymer packaging, it is held accountable for processing & disposing of hundred metric tonnes of post-consumer plastic waste. The PROs or Producer Responsibility Organization can likewise be given this task. The producer contact a PRO for the proper disposal and storage of plastic garbage.
