Stewardship Ontario no longer calculates and publishes a fee schedule that sets out fee rates per unit/volume because O. Reg. 387/16 under the Waste Diversion Transition Act, 2016 (WDTA), formerly O. Reg. 11/12, requires stewards to pay quarterly invoices based on actual costs for the quarter. Unlike static fee schedules, these costs are expected to fluctuate from quarter to quarter based on volume and seasonality of materials collected. Beginning in Q2 (April) 2012, each steward receives a quarterly invoice from Stewardship Ontario that sets out their share of costs for that quarter, which is calculated on the basis of their company’s individual share of the total quantities reported to Stewardship Ontario.
