Fast-forward in December 2019, the Minister of Environment, Forestry and Fisheries, Barbara Creecy closed Section 28 process by rejecting all plans and announced that she will engage with stakeholders in order to propose the Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) framework process under Section 18 of Waste Act.
