Alberta has announced that the province will intervene in two court challenges against the federal government’s plans to list plastic products as “toxic” and phase out a number of single-use items by 2030. Ottawa intends to ban several plastic products, including straws, takeout containers and cutlery, by the end of the decade through a phased approach.
The government also has multiple regulations on the way in the next few years as a direct outcome of this legislation, including minimum requirements for recycled content and recyclability and composability regulations.
