Stewardship Agencies of BC
There are currently 16 stewardship organizations operating in British Columbia, with more slated to start operation every year. The increase in product stewardship agencies is primarily due to the BC Government's commitment to the CCME Canada Wide Action Plan.
With the recent expansion of extended producer responsibility (EPR) programs in B.C., growing pains are being experienced by all stakeholders, particularly stewardship agencies, local governments and the Ministry. The Stewardship Agencies of BC (SABC) have been working on an Action Plan to help address the EPR program challenges in a manner consistent with the key program principles.
Craig Wisehart will provide an update on the Action Plan and how it relates to industry stakeholders.
