Please note that the content of 2017 Blue Box Rules has not changed since 2016; only the dates have been updated to reflect the current reporting cycle.

INFORMATION ON RULES

The Rules that govern the Blue Box Program Plan are released annually in advance of the new program year. They are modified each year to:

  • Address changes to dates
  • Address changes in material fee rates
  • Clarify the Rules for stewards
  • Address shortcomings that come to the attention of Stewardship Ontario, to ensure a level playing field

As your primary resource, and an indispensable reference tool, the Rules for stewards provide:

  • A detailed definition of Blue Box terms
  • Provisions to determine who is designated as a steward
  • Requirements for filing, and in some cases re-filing, steward reports
  • Potential penalties, interests and fees in the event of non-compliance
  • Expectations with respect to providing and retaining data, including calculation methodology, packaging data and audit reports
  • An explanation of what constitutes “resident in Ontario” for the purposes of the program
  • The payment and reporting schedule for the given program year
  • The table of fees for all material designated as Blue Box waste
