In October 2018 we started to develope a technical support project to elaborate the strategy and regulations to implement the expanded producer responsibility in Bolivia, with special emphasis on packaging.
This project was commissioned by the Agència de Residus de Catalunya (ARC) within the framework of the Technical Cooperation Program that Catalonia has with the Ministry of Environment and Water of Bolivia (MMAyA) to support the Institutional strengthening project on waste management.
In November 2018, Maria Mestre (ENT) and a representative of the ARC, traveled to La Paz (Bolivia) to support the elaboration of an extended producer responsibility regulation for pesticide containers.
The technical assistance had continued with the support to the elaboration of a general strategy of extended producer responsibility for PET bottles, polyethylene bags, tires, batteries, batteries and WEEE, the waste streams that the regulatory framework for waste in Bolivia determines which must be managed under the extended responsibility regime of the producer.
