Amended Blue Box Program Plan

The Minister of the Environment and Climate Change has directed the Authority and Stewardship Ontario to jointly develop a proposal for an amended Blue Box Program Plan. The proposal will outline the first phase of transition for the Blue Box Program under the Waste Diversion Transition Act, 2016, and will set the stage for a second phase of transition that will result in individual producer responsibility under the Resource Recovery and Circular Economy Act, 2016 (RRCEA).

The Authority and Stewardship Ontario are developing the proposal collaboratively through meaningful consultations as detailed in our Stakeholder and Indigenous Peoples Engagement and Communications Plan, which also outlines how information on the proposal will be shared with stakeholders, Indigenous Peoples and the public.

Information about these consultations, including dates, locations and conference call instructions, are available on Stewardship Ontario's Amended Blue Box Program Plan Initiative webpage.
