Government to host webinar on the development of new Blue Box regulation

The government of Ontario is moving forward with transitioning the Blue Box program to full producer responsibility and will be hosting a webinar to explain how to participate in the development of the regulation that will define how the new Blue Box system will work.

The webinar will be held on 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.

The first step in transitioning the Blue Box program to full producer responsibility occurred on August 15, 2019, when the Minister of the Environment, Conservation and Parks directed Stewardship Ontario to develop a plan with regards to the funding program for blue box materials collected under the Waste Diversion Transition Act, 2016. The Blue Box Program will transition to producer responsibility in phases over a three-year period, starting in 2023. Learn more about the Blue Box transition.
