The EPR Registration Process Webinar hosted by the RMA and ARMA on October 11 is now available to view
Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) is designed to shift the physical and financial burden of collecting, sorting, processing, and recycling waste away from municipalities and taxpayers and onto producers. This system is operating in provinces across the Canada and implementation is now making its way to Alberta. This transition will have significant impacts on municipalities across the province and will require municipalities to take certain actions in the coming months and years.
The Alberta Recycling Management Authority
(ARMA) is the oversight body for EPR in Alberta and will be the point of contact for the registration process. Municipalities are encouraged to register through ARMA Connect
, to start the conversation around passing off the physical and financial responsibility of collecting, processing, and recycling materials from the municipality to a Producer Responsibility Organization.
On October 11, the RMA hosted an EPR Registration Process Webinar
for rural municipalities to better understand the process. After presentations
from panelists, members were able to ask questions about the registration process and what it will look like for municipalities.
