Full Producer Responsibility For Recycling Coming To Manitoba Soon

The Manitoba government is looking for a way to move the province to full extended producer responsibility, also known as EPR, on certain blue box materials.

Manitoba currently relies on a shared responsibility approach where producers are responsible for 80 percent of recycling costs and local governments have operational responsibility and pay the remaining 20 percent.

The province wants to change that formula by making producers responsible for all costs connected to collecting, transporting, processing and marketing residential packaging and printed paper.
