The responsibilities of PIBO’s [Producer, Importers & Brand-owners] has been extended to retrieve the plastics which they have pumped into the Indian market along with their product, in the form of plastics or plastic packaging.
Our primary goal is to establish an efficient and seamless EPR system that manages the collection, segragation, and transportation of materials to an authorized waste disposal facility with the approval of CPCB.
