National Integration for Blue Box in Canada

As we kick off the New Year, we are pleased to provide an update on our progress on national integration for Blue Box in Canada.

As a follow up to our update and producer webinars hosted in 2023, to support the ongoing transition to extended producer responsibility in Canada and manage impacts, Circular Materials, Multi-Material Stewardship Manitoba, Multi-Material Stewardship Western and Recycle BC have been working together to develop an optimal business model for delivering a harmonized, national approach to EPR in Canada.  

This has included the development of a nationally integrated approach and roadmap that identifies activities the respective organizations will collaborate on to mitigate cost increases and achieve the productivity gains that can come from national integration and local/regional management. 

To ensure we continue to meet our producers’ needs, we invite you to participate in our upcoming producer engagement sessions starting on January 24, 2024. The purpose of these sessions is to share our progress and capture your feedback and questions to ensure continued alignment with producers’ goals and objectives prior to implementation. 

To support a comprehensive feedback process, we will be seeking your feedback from January 24 – February 29 through the following channels:

Webinars

Two webinars were held on January 24 and 29. A pre-read document outlining details of the approach to national integration was distributed to registered attendees prior to the sessions.

Written comments

Producers can provide feedback by February 29, 2024 to nationalintegration@circularmaterials.ca.

We look forward to continuing to collaborate with you and leveraging the strengths, capabilities, and investments we have built over the years across producer responsibility organizations to deliver value through national integration. 

Thank you in advance for your participation, support, and feedback.
