RCO Webinars: Bill 151

RCO Webinars

On Nov. 26 the Government of Ontario proposed sweeping changes to provincial waste policy that is intended to enable a shift to a circular economy that would increase resource recovery and waste reduction in Ontario: Bill 151: An Act to enact the Resource Recovery and Circular Economy Act, 2015 and the Waste Diversion Transition Act, 2015 and to repeal the Waste Diversion Act, 2002.

The Ministry of Environment and Climate Change is accepting public comment until Feb. 24, 2016, and has made the policies available for review:

Recycling Council of Ontario has begun reviewing the documents in-depth, and is presenting webinars to recap and explain intention, meanings, and possible outcomes of the proposed policy. The draft legislation is far-reaching and has the ability to make sweeping changes to existing regulations, producer responsibility policy, materials management in the IC&I sector, performance and reporting requirements, and may target certain streams like organics.
