On February 11, 2022, the Government of Canada released a Technical issues paper: Recycled content for certain plastic manufactured items Regulations and is seeking stakeholder feedback prior to the March 14, 2022 deadline. Feedback will help inform proposed regulations which may be published as early as late 2022. The initial proposal is to set minimum recycled content requirements for certain plastics with a focus on packaging such as bottles, films (e.g., shrink wrap), rigid/flexible/foam containers, and more.
Based on member feedback, RCC will be preparing a submission. If you have any comments or would like to participate, please contact Kelsey Morden at email@example.com.
