From September 26 to November 10, 2022, RPRA is consulting on the proposed fees for the Excess Soil Registry, and for producer responsibility programs under the Resource Recovery and Circular Economy Act, 2016 (RRCEA):
- Blue Box materials
- Hazardous and Special Products (HSP)
- Information Technology, Telecommunications and Audio-Visual (ITT/AV) equipment
Fees for RRCEA programs are charges that producers pay to RPRA annually to cover its costs related to compliance and enforcement activities, and for building and operating the registry portals for each material category. Fees charged to users of the Excess Soil Registry are for building and operating the registry and providing support to users.
As in previous years, producers obligated under RRCEA regulations will be required to report their supply data and pay the associated fees to RPRA in 2023. More information on reporting requirements can be found on the program pages linked above.
This proposal outlines the proposed 2023 RRCEA program and Excess Soil Registry fees, and gives an overview of RPRA’s Cost Allocation Methodology. The proposed fee rates are estimates based on known information available at this time.
