New direction in producer responsibility is changing the course for end-of-life products and packaging management in the province of Ontario. This new regulatory approach means that individuall producers, manufactures, importers and distributors need to achieve and demonstrate compliance with new accessibility, collection and material recovery targets.
As a producer, you now have a choice on how to demonstrate compliance. You can self-comply or work with an independent producer responsibility organization or PRO like Ryse Solutions to help you meet your obligations.
Understanding Your Role
The new Resource Recovery and Circular Economy Act (RRCEA) will replace existing waste diversion programs and industry-funded organizations that currently regulate recycling in the province of Ontario. Under this new framework, producers, manufacturers, distributors and retailers will be responsible for end-of-life management of the products and packaging they sell.
Do you currently pay into one of Ontario’s four recycling programs (e.g. Used Tires or WEEE)? You may be obligated to report on the collection and management of the products and packaging you supply to Ontario consumers. You may also be required to register your business with the Resource Productivity and Recovery Authority (RPRA) and register with a Producer Responsibility Organization (PRO) like Ryse Solutions Inc.
