Valpak report explores alternative approach to EPR reform

Packaging compliance scheme Valpak has published a report on a collaborative alternative to the government’s current options for extended producer responsibility (EPR) reform.

The report, PackFlow Hybrid Model – An Enhanced Approach to EPR Reform, is the result of months of research and modelling. It outlines a new, hybrid system that builds on and enhances the four models provided in the government’s consultation on EPR.

Director of Consulting at Valpak, Andrew McCaffery, said the combined system represents the best opportunity to develop end markets and encourage meaningful recycling.

“None of the models offered in the consultation have focused strongly on ways to develop end markets. We have a unique chance to reform the system in a way that will redefine the costs around collection and recycling, and transform the landscape for packaging. We should ensure that whichever option is chosen represents a robust system designed to meet – and exceed – the UK’s requirements,” he commented.
