Will a regulatory product stewardship scheme for e-products include opportunities for product repair, re-use and lifecycle extension?

  • TechCollect NZ supports sensible product stewardship interventions that align with New Zealand’s waste management hierarchy i.e. re-use before recycling wherever possible, and those that place a heightened focus around waste avoidance.
  • The working group will be exploring what role re-use initiatives can play in a regulatory product stewardship scheme and will be including recommendations to Government around this.
  • Product repair and re-use provides a number of benefits within the interest of national supply chains such as retaining valuable resources locally and creating local skill-based jobs. This will also be a key driver in propelling a more circular and lower-carbon economy in New Zealand.
