Public consultation on the Minister's product stewardship priority list is closed.

What you said

Thank you to those who nominated products for the 2022-2023 Minister’s product stewardship priority list. We received over 70 nominations covering more than 27 distinct products.

What happens next

The assessment of nominated products has now commenced. In line with the Recycling and Waste Reduction Act 2020 (RaWR Act 2020) the Australian Government will consult with the Product Stewardship Centre of Excellence, state and territory governments and industry groups when required. Assessment will consider reasons for listing, what actions can be achieved in the given timeframes, and how these products will help to achieve our waste targets

The RaWR Act requires that the list identify products and materials for which the Minister expects industry to take product stewardship action. This may be through improved design, manufacture and end of life actions that provide environmental and health benefits.
