Your recycling program

New regulations in Nova Scotia shift the financial and operational responsibility for recycling from municipalities to the organizations that produce and sell packaging and paper.

Circular Materials is the producer responsibility organization that will be responsible for implementing and managing the new extended producer responsibility recycling system for packaging and paper in Nova Scotia.

The transition to this new framework will take place on December 1, 2025.
