The Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) is a new piece of UK legislation introduced at the beginning of 2023, requiring businesses to change the way they collect and report data on the packaging they handle and to take responsibility for the disposal and recycling of their packaging at the end of its life cycle.

We are still in the process of assessing the impact that this regulation will have and the cost implications on the packaging we use on behalf of our customers.

Any levies associated with this regulation will be backdated to January 2023 and will be based on the packaging usage recorded throughout 2023.

CPG is committed to complying with this new regulation and doing our part to reduce waste and promote sustainability and we will provide updates to all our customers in due course.

Any questions, please do not hesitate to contact your Customer Service Team.
