The BFFF wish to extend their congratulations to Dr Margaret Bates on her recent appointment as the first Head of the packaging EPR scheme administrator.

The UK packaging Extended Producer Responsibility (pEPR) initiative aims to transfer the financial burden of handling packaging waste away from taxpayers and onto packaging producers themselves. Under this scheme, these producers will bear the full cost of managing packaging waste originating from households.

Margaret will be on secondment from OPRL, a not-for-profit organisation that helps businesses to access recycling and refill messages for brand and retailer packaging.

The role will involve collaborating closely with Defra, the Devolved Administrations, and various stakeholders along the collection and packaging value chain to reduce packaging usage, promote recyclable packaging, and achieve the governments recycling targets.
