If First Nations, municipalities or other collection site operators want to collect used ITT/AV equipment as a service to customers or residents, they need to ensure their sites are included in a collection network.

Most producers will be working with service providers, such as PROs, processors or haulers, to set up their collection networks. First Nations, municipalities, and collection site operators should contact a service provider registered with the Authority listed here.

Since producers can reduce their accessibility requirements by providing options such as curbside collection or collection events, municipalities and First Nations will also need to contact a service provider if they are interested in providing these services to their residents.

In order for ITT/AV collected from a collection site to count towards a producer’s management requirements, the site must accept ITT/AV free of charge and satisfy the following additional requirements:

  • If the ITT/AV collection site is not part of a retail location, it must accept all ITT/AV.
  • If the site is part of a retail location, it must accept (at a minimum) all ITT/AV that are of a similar size and function sold at the location.
  • The site must be readily accessible to the public and operate during normal business hours.
  • The site must accept, at a minimum, up to 50 kg of ITT/AV per day from any person.
  • If the site is not part of a retail location and accepts more than 50 kg of ITT/AV from a person on a single day, the site operator must record the person’s name, contact information, any unique identifier assigned by the Registrar and the weight of ITT/AV accepted.

Haulers, refurbishers or processors who pick up and process used ITT/AV for a producer, must be registered with the Authority in order for the ITT/AV they transport and process to count towards a producer’s management requirement.

Municipalities with a population of less than 1,000, First Nation sites or Ontario crown sites can contact a producer or a PRO to arrange a pick-up once they collect four tonnes of ITT/AV. The producer or PRO must collect the ITT/AV within one year from the time the request is made. This requirement does not apply to collection sites operated in the Far North.
