Will a regulatory product stewardship scheme for e-products lead to more local jobs?

  • With more e-products being recovered in Aotearoa to be managed through formal recycling channels with defined treatment standards, we would expect to see a mandatory product stewardship scheme significantly contribute to the creation of local skill-based employment opportunities.
  • This extends to e-product collection, transport, repair, refurbishment and recycling activities leading to local jobs for kiwis in our e-product management sector.
  • In Australia, the Australian Council of Recyclers has estimated that for every 10,000 tonnes of waste recycled, approximately 9.2 full time jobs are created. For the same amount of waste managed in landfill, only 2.8 full time jobs are created.
