Who decides what products are included in EPR programs?
Products included in EPR programs are set by the BC Ministry of Environment and governed by the Recycling Regulation.
Recently, the Canadian Council of Ministers of the Environment (CCME) established nationwide deadlines for a range of product categories. The BC Ministry of Environment is required to meet these deadlines and product lists, but may also choose to expand the program further.
