Queensland Becomes First GlobalPSC Sustaining Government Member
We are very pleased to announce that the Queensland Department of Environment and Heritage Protection has upgraded its GlobalPSC membership to become our first Sustaining Government member.
The Department administers the Waste Reduction and Recycling Act 2011, which provides a framework for waste management and resource recovery in Queensland, Australia. Among other things, the Act provides for the development of product stewardship schemes for products of priority for Queensland. The Department also supports national product stewardship initiatives and provides the Secretariat support for the current program of work on the development of a handheld battery product stewardship scheme.
