On February 9, 2012 the Minister of the Environment directed WDO to undertake a review of waste diversion Incentive Programs. WDO retained KPMG to assist with that work.
On May 2, 2012 WDO, in cooperation with Recycling Council of Ontario (RCO), held two workshops -- one for processors and manufacturers, and the other for collectors, including municipalities and transporters of used tires -- on the used tire program incentives. For a summary of the feedback provided at these two workshops please click here.
On May 7, 2012, an additional consultation workshop was held, also in cooperation with RCO, to provide an opportunity for representatives from the OTS Board and its stewards to provide input regarding the incentive program.
