Updates from the Conference on Canadian Stewardship 2017

Do you know how the Ontario Resource Recovery & Circular Economy Act of 2016 will affect your business?

Did you know that an "eco-fee" is not a tax? 

Did you miss the stewardship conference of the year? 

If you answered No, No and Yes to the questions above, consider this. 

The Circular Economy Act of 2016 may increase the business levy for the Ontario blue box recycling program from 50% to 100%. The exact wording of this change is a move to "full producer responsibility." Your business could be defined as a producer if you are a retailer, distributor, manufacturer or importer of consumer or business products in Ontario. Meaning, more likely than not, the fees paid to Stewardship Ontario will drastically increase over the next five years. 

To learn more about these changes, and how they relate specifically to plastics packaging recycling fees, join me at the Mississauga Valley Community Centre on Thursday, October 19th at Noon for a Litter-less Lunch & Learn

The presentation will start at 12:10, run for 30 minutes, after which we will have a Questions & Answer period followed by networking until 1:30 if you are available.

Homemade artisan sandwiches and a yummy quinoa and garden-fresh vegetable salad will be served. See you there!
