The Household Packaging and Paper Stewardship Program Regulations govern the distribution of packaging and printed paper to Saskatchewan households by businesses. These regulations are intended to ensure a successful, efficient and sustainable program to handle the recycling of packaging and printed paper.
If your Saskatchewan-based organization supplies or distributes packaging or paper to Saskatchewan households, then your organization may be obligated to participate in the Multi-Material Recycling Program.
Regulatory Changes are Being Considered
The Ministry of Environment conducted engagement on proposed draft regulations and a summary of the proposed changes from May 12 to June 30, 2022. The proposed changes consider harmonizing the regulations with neighbouring jurisdictions and shifting to a program fully funded and operated by producers. Municipalities, First Nations, businesses, waste collectors and other interest groups provided feedback on the draft regulations through virtual engagement sessions, written feedback and individual meetings. The ministry is working to review the feedback received during engagement and revise the proposed regulations for finalization.
