AMO initial comments on the proposed Waste Reduction Act and Waste Reduction Strategy introduced on June 6th.

AMO is supportive of the proposed Waste Reduction Act and Waste Reduction Strategy and the environmental principles embedded throughout the documents. We do recognize that not everyone is supportive of Bill 91 at this time.

However, it is our understanding that all informed waste diversion parties have stated that the status quo is not acceptable, especially with respect to the hallmark Blue Box program. We continue to say that the municipal sector remains committed to working with the government and the waste diversion parties to improve Ontario’s waste diversion system.
