Date December 22, 2017 Author Lucy Robinson Categories Announcements | Industry News
The draft Blue Box Program Plan began with a vision for gradual transition to full producer responsibility, first jointly developed and set out by producers and municipalities in a July 2017 Accord, which was predicated on shifting the economic burden of recycling to business in exchange for business taking over the management of their paper products and packaging (PPP), stipulated that the transition must:
