The Government of Yukon is committed to implementing an extended producer responsibility program for packaging and paper by 2025.
In 2022, the Government of Yukon consulted with stakeholders to draft a legislative proposal for the extended producer responsibility regulation. From November 2022 to February 2023, the government conducted public and stakeholder engagement. Circular Materials will be representing producers as the Producer Responsibility Organization (PRO) in the territory. The next steps are to draft the regulation and allow time for the extended producer responsibility program plans to be approved and implemented by the end of 2025.
