ORW for small communities held on March 4

CIF hosted a special Ontario Recycler Workshop (ORW) for small municipal and First Nations communities. This online event was Thursday, March 4, 2021.

With the release of the final new blue box regulations on the horizon, this special ORW featured presentations and discussions designed to help small municipalities and First Nations understand the implications and planning needs for their communities as Ontario’s Blue Box program begins to transition to an Individual Producer Responsibility (IPR) framework.
