Ontario Regulations

The Ontario Ministry of Environment and Climate Change has taken steps to foster the continued growth towards a circular economy.  As such, they have created three acts that producers must comply with when selling products in Ontario.

Resource Recover and Circular Economy Act (RRCEA)

This act replaces existing waste diversion programs and industry funded organizations, like the Ontario Tire Stewardship, that control tire recycling in the province. Under this new framework, producers will be responsible for end-of-life management of the products and packaging they sell in the province of Ontario.

Resource Recovery and Circular Economy Act (RRCEA)

The Tires Regulation under the Resource Recovery and Circular Economy Act, 2016 requires tire producers to be responsible for collecting and managing tires supplied to customers in Ontario by reusing, retreading and recycling them. The regulation establishes mandatory and enforceable tire collection and management targets for producers and  gives producers flexibility to meet their targets by either making their own arrangements for collecting and managing tires or by contracting a Producer Responsibility Organization (PRO) to work on their behalf.
