Plastic Action Centre

Canadians are keenly aware of the consequences tied to plastic waste and are eager to learn how they can reduce the impact of choices they make as individuals, businesses, and governments.

Despite the increasing interest in plastics and reducing its environmental impacts there is no single national repository that provides governments, businesses, educators, researchers, and citizens the necessary scope of information to take meaningful action.

With the belief that information leads to action, Recycling Council of Ontario (RCO) has developed the Plastic Action Centre, a knowledge hub that gathers information to educate, engage, and empower action on plastics.

Launched in April 2019, the Plastic Action Centre includes:

Inventory of resources and tools

Relevant facts and figures

Market developments and business efforts

Regulatory advances and policy initiatives

Media coverage

Educational material

Consumer tips and more

The Plastic Action Centre is constantly growing and being updated. To receive the most up-to-date information about plastics news, resources, and initiatives in Canada please check back often, join our newsletter, and follow us on social media.Plastic Action Centre Audiences and Resources
