Registration is now open for the EPR Registration Process Webinar hosted by the RMA and ARMA on October 11
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
