Transitioning of Blue Box Collection Services

Starting July 1, 2023, municipalities will begin transitioning their Blue Box programs to the new extended producer responsibility (EPR) framework under the Blue Box Regulation.

We are offering contracts with municipalities to continue services that meet the criteria for services to be provided during the transition period.

Join Our Municipal Working Group

To support ongoing collaboration with municipalities, we are establishing a Municipal Working Group as a forum to share feedback, raise questions and directly engage with our team. 

We will be hosting the Municipal Working Group meetings on the fourth Wednesday of every month from 2:00 – 3:30 p.m. ET.

Register for the meeting series here

You only need to register once to attend all the Municipal Working Group meetings. Once registered, you will be sent a confirmation email from Zoom and can add all the meeting dates to your calendar.

Please note: this working group is open to municipalities only.

Complete the Transition Survey

Please complete our short survey regarding residence and facility services by July 15, 2022. The information gathered from this survey will support us in planning for the transition of blue box collection services.

Contracts

Below you’ll find the revised agreements that reflect your feedback.

These agreements are for the period from your transition date until December 2025. A pricing explanatory note is also below that describes the methodologies to calculate the amount Circular Materials will pay municipalities with whom it has an agreement.

Please review and send questions to info@circularmaterials.ca.

Resources

A number of municipalities have asked for assistance to estimate payments under the Statements of Work. To support municipalities in estimating payments under each Statement of Work, we have prepared a Municipal Payment Calculation Model. By entering your data into the orange shaded cells (following the instructions in blue font) on the Residence – Facility Payment tab, Depot Payment tab and Public Space Payment tab, the annualized payment in your transition year and for each subsequent year will calculate automatically.

We presented at AMO’s webinar, Blue Box Regulation & Transition: PRO Approaches to Procurement. Below is the presentation and Q&A.
