For Plastic Waste Management
What is EPR Registration?
EPR registration for plastic waste is the responsibility of the management of disposal of those products once labeled as no longer useful by the consumers. Our main objective is to develop an easy and effective system that takes care of collection, segregation, and transportation of the material to the waste disposal facility which is approved by MPCB and CPCB as a professional agencies.
These materials are also used in Cement Kilns, pyrolysis, road construction, and recycling center on the basis of their quality.
Effective Waste Management
Get access to a comprehensive framework for Cost-effective waste management.
Recycling plays an important role in Swachh Bharat Mission. Recyclers and scrap dealers earn recognition in the larger market.
EPR helps in the conservation of natural resources and eradicates pollution. This in turn helps in sustainable development which is important for the consumers and manufacturers
CPCB EPR Registration Process
- The process starts with CPCB /SPCB
- The authorized waste management agency collects the agreed volume of post-customer plastic waste
- The waste collection agency will present relevant documents for proof of waste collection activity
- On behalf of PIBOM’s agency will submit a quarterly report to CPCB.
- After completion of the activity final report will be submitted by the agency to PIBOM’

Recycling Plastic Waste
Plastic waste is causing damage to the environment and increasing pollution. It is hazardous not only to human health but also to wildlife. If plastic is not correctly managed, producing new plastic products will be a waste of resources. Hence, plastic recycling is the most essential step toward preventing environmental damage.
Plastic recycling is the process of collecting plastic waste and converting them into reusable products. Almost all products have plastic involved in it. Recycling ensures that plastic is not getting wasted. Instead, it is recycled into plastic granules which are further converted into new products such as benches, chairs, dustbins, etc.
What are the types of plastic that can be recycled?
PET also known as Polyethylene Terephthalate, is a popular thermoplastic. This material is perfect for producing low-pressure products. Clothing fibers and soft drink bottles are popular products made from PET.
PVC also known as Polyvinyl Chloride is a thermoplastic. It is also one of the commonly used plastic materials around the world. PVC is used in wires, pipes, bottles, etc.
LPDE is Low-Density Poly Ethylene. It is used to make plastic bags. It is not easy to recycle this material. Instead of recycling, you can clean and reuse them for other purposes.
PS is a polymer. Examples of products that come from this plastic include plastic cutlery and yogurt containers.
PP is also a polymer. Manufacturers frequently use it to make plastic boxes, plastic furniture, and plastic jar lids.
As shown above, there are different type of plastic and have different recycling process. However, the basic Plastic Recycling Process is as follows:
- Collecting: The plastic waste is collected from various communities by organizing various IEC activities such as door-to-door collection, Beach Cleanups, Collection drives in schools, etc.
- Segregation: Once the plastic waste is collected it is sent to the facility for segregation. Here the waste is segregated according to the type of plastic.
- Shredding: The segregated plastic waste is converted into flakes via shredding.
- Washing: Now the plastic waste is sent to the washing line for cleaning any food particles in it.
- Melting: The plastic waste is heated to the melting point so that it can be further processed into granules.
- Recycled Products: The granules are used for creating and manufacturing eco-friendly recycled plastic products.. this
EPR Authorization for Plastic Waste Management
Plastic has many uses and the improper disposal of plastic waste has become a major threat to the environment. Plastic carry bags and plastic packaging materials are the major contributors to environmental pollution like soil, water, and air, it takes an average of one thousand years to decompose completely. Therefore the plastic waste management regulations in 2011, were introduced, in order to tackle the problem of plastic waste in a scientific manner. In violation of the earlier Plastic Waste Regulations, 2011 the government notified the Plastic Waste Management Regulations, 2016.
The objectives of Extended Producer Responsibility:
The 2016 Plastic Waste Management Rules require manufacturers and importers to properly dispose of or recycle post-consumer plastic waste. Extended Producer Responsibility (E.P.R.) is a business and environmental strategy for managing the lifespan of a product. EPR Authorization is the term used to describe the producer’s responsibility for controlling product disposal after consumers have declared them to be useless. Making it simpler for end-of-life, post-consumer waste to be collected and recycled is a producer’s obligation. The objective is to develop a system that handles the collecting, sorting, and transportation of waste to a disposal site. These materials can also be utilized in cement kilns, pyrolysis, road construction, and recycling facilities due to their high quality and low cost. End-of-life garbage produced by waste generators, such as brand owners and producers, must be collected. Brands are financially motivated by this to create markets for the reuse, buyback, and recycling of materials. Companies might also assign a third party to complete this duty.
