Ontario's e-waste opportunity

As of Jan. 1, 2021, producers will be responsible for managing the electronic waste (e-waste) generated by their products, a measure designed to encourage them to practise the 3Rs — reduce, reuse and recycling. This approach is also being implemented for the management of household hazardous wastes and for the blue box.

The fact is that Ontario can and should do much better and these new measures can be a catalyst to improve our performance. It’s not only good for the environment, it’s good for the economy.
