RREUSE background paper on EPR schemes and product reuse

Paper highlights a number of ways in which EPR schemes can potentially contribute to resource efficiency and socio-economic inclusion


The amounts of reusable products ending up in the waste stream are significant. Directly recycling, incinerating, or landfilling these products is a real missed environmental and socio economic opportunity.

The paper was presented at the conference entitled EPR Revolution in the European Context on 19th September in Brussels.
