Questions and Answers about Recycling (New in 2023)

Why aren’t we responsible for recycling?

North Grenville is no longer responsible for the Blue Box program. Under the Ontario Government’s Resource Recovery and Circular Economy Act, 2016, Ontario’s Blue Box Regulation shifts responsibility for the Blue Box Program to the organizations that produce products and packaging. Under the old system, communities shared the costs.  

Starting July 1, 2023, communities began transitioning their Blue Box programs to this new extended producer responsibility framework. North Grenville transitioned on October 1, 2023, with the Blue Box program now being managed by Circular Materials.  During the transition period, you won’t notice any difference to your pick-up schedule or the materials you can recycle. What’s changing is who is responsible for funding and operating the recycling system.
