On August 14th, the Ontario Minister of Environment and Climate Change, Hon. Chris Ballard issued a letter directing Stewardship Ontario and the Resource Productivity and Recovery Authority (the Authority) to prepare an amended Blue Box Program Plan (a-BBPP) by February 15, 2018. The amended Plan will transition the program from its current shared cost model to full producer responsibility pursuant to s.13 of the Waste Diversion Transition Act (WDTA).

Please do not forward this meeting invite to your members, as this preview session is for steward industry associations only. We look forward to meeting with you on October 5th.
