Armenia is going to increase the responsibility of enterprises to eliminate the negative consequences of wastes on environment. It’s about out-of-use electronic appliances, packaging materials, different spare parts of cars such as tyres and batteries.
The state doesn’t regulate processes of collecting such wastes in Armenia, but around 10 organizations will deal with their collection and recycling.
On 13 April 2017 the executive approved the concept paper on the introduction of systems to expand the responsibility of manufacturers/importers, which envisages to set prerequisites to introduce a system to expand responsibility for the manufacturer (importer). An enterprise shall envisage measures to eliminate environmental consequences arising from out-of-use products and shall bear administrative and financial responsibility for the elimination of negative consequences.
