Webinar Series | Packaging EPR schemes: lessons from Europe

The Waste Management and Resource Recovery Association of Australia (WMRR) and Reloop invite you to join us online on Tuesday, 27 February 2024 for the first in a three (3) part webinar series on the latest developments in managing packaging in Europe, and what we can learn from them in the lead up to public consultation on packaging reforms in Australia.




In this webinar, we'll be joined by Reloop's European Director of Circular Economy Development, Anna Larsson, to discuss the substantial shift and modernisation of Sweden’s 30-year old packaging EPR (Extended Producer Responsibility) scheme. 

Sweden is often referred to as the ‘cradle’ of Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) in Europe. The country's packaging EPR scheme was launched in 1994, the same year as their beverage container deposit scheme. 

They are once again leading Europe in revolutionising the industry, moving from producer funded and operated (through a network of public place collection centres) to a producer financed and local government operated scheme. This shift will see kerbside recovery become the backbone of the collection network with funding coming from EPR fees on producers. 

In changing from a ‘bring’ to an 'at-home' collection system Sweden aims to increase the quantity and quality of recovered material to meet circular economy and recycled content targets.  

The webinar will be co-hosted by WMRR CEO, Gayle Sloan and Director of Reloop Pacific, Robert Kelman.
