Ontario e-scrap system undergoes changes
By Editorial Staff, Resource Recycling
The electronics recycling program in Canada's most populous province is being updated.
The province's environmental ministry has approved a change in the program to provide for the recovery of operational costs from producers based on the actual costs of recycling, not on estimated costs.
In addition, Waste Diversion Ontario, the overseer of the program, has hired a consulting company to undertake a review of the electronics recycling system. A meeting with all stakeholders will be held in early March to discuss key issues and to solicit advice on developing new program options.
