On behalf of the municipal sector.
The Association of Municipalities of Ontario ("AMO"), the City of Toronto, Regional Public Works Commissioners of Ontario and the Municipal Waste Association collectively submit these comments on behalf of municipal governments to EBR Registry Number 012-5832 to request that the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change ("MOECC") take into consideration the views of these organizations in its review of Bill 151 to improve and enhance waste diversion programs in Ontario.

The municipal sector applauds the Province's effort to move to an extended producer responsibility system. However, there are numerous issues that need to be addressed in the legislation now as opposed to through policy statements and regulations at a later date.
