Blue Box Program Rules

2021 Rules

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
  • Improve clarity and address issues that come to the attention of Stewardship Ontario

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 steward reports
  • Potential penalties and interests 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
