NSW Product Stewardship Cluster Workshop 1 Summary

Posted by GlobalPSC at 11:00 am, March 2nd, 2017Comments0

The New South Wales (NSW), Australia, Office of Environment and Heritage (OEH) is funding a series of half-day workshops to promote product stewardship and to explore collaborative product stewardship and circular economy projects. The GlobalPSC and a number of our members were invited to participate in the discussions.

The first workshop on 10 February 2017 involved representatives from 15 product stewardship organisations (PSOs), OEH, NSW EPA, Sustainability Victoria and the GlobalPSC. Other GlobalPSC members participating include the Queensland Department of Environment and Heritage ProtectionClose the Loop, TechCollect, the Australian Packaging Covenant, the Vinyl Council of Australia and Helen Lewis Research.

This was the first time that so many PSOs had met formally to discuss opportunities for collaboration. They represented companies involved in the collection, recycling and program delivery of diverse products and materials including e-waste, mattresses, agricultural chemicals, packaging, plastics, paint, tyres and batteries.

The group identified a diverse range of common issues and potential areas of collaboration.

Results of Workshop 1 are provided in the Knowledge Base available to GlobalPSC members via login on our Members page.
