The Government of Ontario has approved a bill that requires packaged goods producers to ante up for 50% the local government bill for curbside recycling, which will trigger weight-based packaging fees by spring of 2004.
The plan, which was submitted in February 2003, was delayed due to complaints over the cost and complexity of the plan, and because of elections for a new government in October.
State Recycling Laws Update, a newsletter covering North American recycling policy, reports Quebec has legislation in place, and is set to copy Ontario as soon as the regulation is settled.
