Neil Hastie, the former head of product stewardship corporation Encorp Pacific, has been named development director and spokesperson for StewardChoice Enterprises Inc., a new challenger in British Columbia’s burgeoning stewardship industry.
Hastie’s role will be to help the development and implementation of the proposed recycling plan from StewardChoice, which may begin as early as 2015.
StewardChoice will, in the most cost-effective way, support producers who are obligated under the BC Recycling Regulation to recover at least 75 per cent of the packaging and printed paper materials they introduce to the B.C. market.

Hastie joined Encorp in 1998. Prior to that, he had been a senior executive in the retail industry for more than 30 years. He has a B.Sc. from Bishops University in Lennoxville, Quebec, and an MBA (honours) from York University in Toronto.
