Ministry of Environment, Conservation & Parks Webinar, Nov. 27, 2019, re: Next Steps in the Blue Box Transition

The Ministry of the Environment, Conservation & Parks is holding a webinar to explain how stakeholders can take part in the development of a new regulation that will define how the producer-run Blue Box system will work.

In August 2019, the Minister directed Stewardship Ontario to develop a plan outlining how the existing municipally-run program will continue until producers take over full operation between 2023 and 2025.

The next stage in this transition process is the development of a regulation under the Resource Recovery and Circular Economy Act to end municipalities’ obligation to provide Blue Box services. The goal is to finalize the regulation early in 2021.

The webinar will be held November 27, 2019. If you are interested in participating, please register by November 22, 2019 with Marc Peverini, Senior Policy Analyst, Resource Recovery Policy Branch at Marc.Peverini@ontario.ca or 416-908-1528. Further webinar details will be provided for those who confirm their participation.
