EPR stands for extended producers’ responsibility i.e brand owners, importers, producers, or manufacturers are responsible for the treatment and disposal of their post-consumer products. They are required to maintain a proper EPR Action plan to collect back the plastic waste generated due to their products.
The plastic waste generated in bulk production is extremely harmful to the environment, especially when it is dumped into the grounds or pollution-causing garbage dumps. Hence it is necessary to treat and recycle it before it causes harm and deteriorates the soil and its livelihood. Therefore, following EPR rules is mandatory and requires complete cooperation.
By providing Plastic EPR Services, our aim is to help organizations meet obligations under PWM Rules by building the Extended producer responsibility plan and working on modalities for the waste collection system.
Looking at the alarming volumes of MLP waste (Multi-Layered Plastic), the Plastic Waste Management (PWM) Rules were passed in 2016 making it a mandate to phase out all non-recyclable and multi-layered plastic (MLPs) within 2 years. In the following years “multi-layered plastic which is non-recyclable or non-energy recoverable or with no alternate use” were banned.
All Bulk producers and packaging brand owners must meet their market target by channeling the plastic (recyclable or non-recyclable multilayer plastic (MLP)) and be responsible for recycling it, which means that all the generated waste is recycled under conditions that display no harm to the environment.

It is now a liability for the manufacturers and sellers of plastic products to collect the waste generated from their production. For example, the brand owners are liable for their brand packaging, collection, and recycling of the packets and plastic packaging which contain their brand name. This is a great step towards decreasing the amount of waste generated as the companies have started switching plastic with paper or other recyclable raw materials so that it is possible to replace the non-recyclable plastic waste with bioplastics or paper which can be easily renewed.
Environmental protection is a priority! Thus, Plastic Waste Management (PWM), collection and recycling of the MLP waste and EPR is crucial and can be completed with the help of PRO (Producer Responsibility Organizations) or private companies which set up treatment plants along with collection mechanisms by providing recyclers and dismantlers. This helps the bulk waste to be recycled with ease in operations and thus helps meet the EPR targets in a fast-paced and timely manner.
Alternatively, the channelization of waste may be done in-house with the producers including reverse supply chain, deploying take-back schemes or setting up collection centers. Sustainable recycling of waste is mandatory for all bulk consumers, producers and manufacturers of electronic and electrical equipment because sound management of the waste ensures a healthier and safe environment.
EPR is no more left to the discretion of the doers.
For the first time, the State Pollution Control Board has introduced the self-healing plan. So anyone and everyone generating any kind of plastic or e-waste are responsible for its own disposal. Be it offices, commercial establishments, industries, or public event holders (marriage functions, religious gatherings, public meetings etc), all must collect and hand over the waste that was generated or littered in a segregated form and also pay the user fee as per by-laws of the local bodies.
DCC is here to provide plastic waste management services to all brand owners.
We are waste segregation. We recover plastic dumped at waste sites/landfills. We then segregate plastic from mixed waste. Supply plastic to furnaces and boilers for plastic recycling so that non-biodegradable plastic/MLP can be used as a source of energy and we can move toward zerowaste mission and a better earth environment.
IT IS NOT A CHOICE, IT IS A MILLION DOLLAR DECISION!
Tackling the plastic problem is utterly important. Cities in India need a very strict and robust plastic waste management system so as to protect their environment. This involves the following steps which can collectively solve the plastic waste problem in the country.
Plastic is a complex material. Products made out of plastic can contain different types of material together. Since all types of plastics are not recyclable, therefore, recycling of plastic products is not easy as all products are not recyclable.
Plastic recycling is easily done for products made up of single plastic material. Eg PET bottles, thermoplastics (plastics that can be recycled as they can be melted and molded into new products), etc.
Do you know the type of waste that cannot be composed or recycled, still has value? Yes, DCC Group has the power of a refuse-derived fuel service that can process different kinds of waste converting the same into forms of fuel.
RDF or Refused Derived Fuel is identified as the fuel source that is mainly produced using both commercials as well as domestic waste including biodegradable materials like plastics.
In simple terms, the RDF’s fuel is generated using tonnes of municipal or public waste after thoroughly sorting recoverable organic and recyclable waste. It is then transformed into solid fuel which can be easily transportable and can be used instead of conventional solid fuel just like coal.
A refuse-derived fuel process helps generate the energy or power that is used in different recovery facilities. RDF will enable other worldwide businesses to generate electricity, heat, and also other forms of renewable energy to make this world a better place.
RDF in waste management boasts of a wide array of advantages. And these are:
Our contemporary yet state-of-the-art refuse-derived fuel plant allows for a broad range of components or materials. These includes:
With us, you’ll be able to process a wide array of waste materials and transmogrify them into Refuse Derived useable fuel energy.
Since the onset of our company, DCC Group has now become more than just any ordinary Manufacturing Waste Segregation plant. As an innovative company, we have now in the RDF movement to transfigure more waste plants into energy.
We are on the mission to cautiously turn the domestic, commercial, industrial, construction, demolition as well as RDF waste into energy sources.
This will give hope to many other organizations to recycle more businesses, enhancing productivity and further minimizing the negative impact on the environment.
Now, is the time to switch your waste to a useable RDF source to make a “BIG” difference!
