Throughout 2022, Circular Materials developed and consulted on a New Brunswick Stewardship Plan for Packaging and Paper on behalf of brand owners obligated by the Designated Materials Regulation under the Clean Environment Act.
On May 5, 2023, Recycle New Brunswick approved the Stewardship Plan, which kickstarts the transition to the new program beginning on November 1, 2023.
As per the Stewardship Plan, the transition of existing residential curbside recycling programs will be complete in 2024 and result in improved recycling programs within each region, including higher recovery and participation rates. The transition of expanded services will be complete in 2025 and the public space transition will be complete in 2027.
NOTICE: Upcoming deadline for Phase 1 communities. Please review below under ‘Transition Contracts’.
