For many years now, Jordan has experienced a huge increase in solid waste, with a daily increase of 350 tonnes in one state alone. This increase has limited the country’s ability to achieve its desired levels of waste management and control.
In addition, Jordan had no detailed or specific EPR legislation for WEEE, packaging or waste batteries. To find a waste management solution, therefore, the authorities have started to propose more specific legislation.
One proposed legislation is “Instructions for the application of the national mechanism of the principle of extended producer responsibility 2020”, which is the first legislation to clearly address the extended producer responsibility (EPR) concept and will probably be supported with supplementary plans and procedures when it is published.
Another proposed legislation is “Electrical and Electronic Waste Management Instruction for the Year 2020” which includes EPR for WEEE and batteries.
If Jordan succeeds in implementing this proposed legislation, then it will be the first country in its region to do so and Jordan will be one step ahead in terms of controlling waste and ensuring a better and healthier environment.
Jordan is one of the countries that Landbell Group covers in its Regulatory Tracking Reports. These reports capture the latest EPR developments and requirements in over 100 countries globally. Find out more about Regulatory Tracking Reports here.
