StewardChoice Enterprises Announces Draft Stewardship Plan
StewardChoice Enterprises Inc. (a subsidiary of GlobalPSC Corporate Member Reclay StewardEdge) has announced from the Recycling Council of British Columbia’s annual Zero Waste Conference that it will publish a draft stewardship plan for packaging and printed paper in British Columbia this June.
The draft plan will undergo public consultations in the coming months, then be submitted for approval to the BC Ministry of Environment. New recycling services will commence, initially in multi-family residential buildings, once approved.
“We see this as an opportunity to provide producers with more choice while offering cost-effective solutions,” says Neil Hastie, Development Director for StewardChoice Enterprises Inc. and GlobalPSC President. “We strongly believe that producers should have the ability to choose a preferred service when determining how to meet their regulatory obligations.”
More than 20% of multi-family buildings in British Columbia do not currently receive a producer funded recycling service.
