Under the Waste Diversion Transition Act, 2016 (WDTA), the Resource Productivity and Recovery Authority is responsible for overseeing the orderly wind up of current waste diversion programs and the industry funding organizations (IFOs) responsible for managing those programs.

Program and IFO wind ups are initiated by the Minister of the Environment, Conservation and Parks to transition materials to individual producer responsibility under the Resource Recovery and Circular Economy Act, 2016. The IFO must then develop a wind-up plan for the Authority’s approval that is consistent with the Minister’s directions, and in accordance with the WDTA and its regulations.

The Authority is also responsible for overseeing the implementation of the wind-up plan.
