Putin supported requirements for disposal of packaging by its manufacturers – RBC

Currently, manufacturers of final products must pay a fee or dispose of the packaging.

In the letter, Abramchenko asked to agree on the transfer of responsibility for the disposal of packaging to its manufacturers and to exclude the possibility of specially created associations complying with waste disposal regulations.

It is proposed to establish responsibility for the disposal of the entire volume of packaging from January 1, 2025. Regulations now require that between 10 and 45% of packaging be recycled.

The extended producer responsibility mechanism has been in operation in Russia since 2015 and its reform has been discussed since 2019. So far, the responsibility for the disposal of packaging lies with the manufacturers of the final products.

In May 2022, the media wrote that Abramchenko’s office had prepared a bill to transfer this responsibility to those who produce containers. Packaging manufacturers objected. The Association of Manufacturers of Glass Containers estimated the increase in the cost of production of containers at 20-30%, depending on their type.
