Alberta’s Recycling Regulations Have Been Extended

To RCA Members:

As a follow-up to our call for action regarding the expiration of Alberta’s recycling regulations, we would like to advise members that the regulations have been extended until June 30, 2018. However, it is still important that the proposed changes to the existing regulatory framework be implemented as soon as possible.

Recent discussions with Alberta Environment and Parks show them to be a willing partner to address these important issues, and suggest that the government intends to introduce amendments well before the next expiry date. However, continued pressure from the community on this issue will serve to encourage action to happen in a timely fashion.

We therefore encourage you to continue to raise this issue with your government representatives and industry peers.
