How We Operate

The Resource Recovery and Circular Economy Act, 2016 (RRCEA) and the Waste Diversion Transition Act, 2016 (WDTA) outline the legislative framework for the responsibilities, powers and duties delegated to the Authority by the Government of Ontario. This includes overseeing industry organizations and the waste diversion programs they operate, and ensuring compliance by obligated parties with responsibilities under the RRCEA.
