Haulers (transporters), refurbishers and processors are often referred to as service providers.

  • An ITT/AV hauler is a person that arranges the transport of ITT/AV used in Ontario that are destined for processing, reuse, refurbishing or disposal.
  • An ITT/AV refurbisher is a person that prepares or refurbishes ITT/AV used in Ontario for the purpose of reuse.
  • An ITT/AV processor is a person that processes ITT/AV used in Ontario for the purpose of resource recovery.

Under the EEE Regulation, collection sites are not required to register or report.

RPRA will be developing a more detailed verification procedure in 2023 through a public consultation.
