FAQ - Changes to Ontario Blue Box Program

The Municipality of Casselman is working with Circular Materials to bring you a best-in-class system that continues to provide recycling services and support our residents. During the transition period, from January 1, 2024 to December 31, 2025, there will be no change to how and what residents recycle.

Why are these changes needed?

In 2021, the Ontario government adopted a new regulation which transfers responsibility, financial and operational aspects of recycling programs blue boxes to producers - those who produce and provide blue box materials to residents. In this new model of extended responsibility of producers, producers will become entirely responsible for collecting and recycling materials blue boxes.

The transition to Extended Producer Responsibility will take place between 2023 and 2025, with the new model fully in place by January 1, 2026. As a result, the Municipality of Casselman's blue box recycling program is now managed by Circular Materials, the administrator of the Blue Box collection system and a not-for-profit organization committed to establishing efficient recycling systems in Ontario.


What does EPR means?

Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) makes companies that supply products and packaging responsible for their end-of-life management. This encourages companies to make more careful decisions about the materials they use in their packaging and products, and makes them responsible for the cost of recycling these products in end-of-life management.

EPR is recognized as one of the most efficient mechanisms for improving recycling rates and advancing a circular economy where materials are collected, recycled and returned to producers for use as recycled content in new products and packaging.

When is the change effective?

Circular Materials begins managing the blue box program
in Casselman starting January 1, 2024.
