TNPCB Releases Handbook to Guide Businesses on Plastic Packaging Waste Management

The Tamil Nadu Pollution Control Board (TNPCB) has launched a new handbook titled “Handbook on EPR Guidelines for Plastic Packaging Waste.”

This resource is designed for various stakeholders involved in the plastic packaging lifecycle, including producers, importers, brand owners, manufacturers, and plastic waste processors.

The handbook simplifies the Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) guidelines for plastic packaging waste, explaining the roles and responsibilities of each party involved.

Businesses can utilize this guide to understand their obligations under the Plastic Waste Management (PWM) Rules and ensure seamless compliance.

While the handbook offers valuable insights, businesses should also consult the Central Pollution Control Board’s (CPCB) official EPR portal for the most up-to-date and accurate information on EPR compliance.
