Multi-Material Recycling Program

The Household Packaging and Paper Stewardship Program Regulations govern the end-of-life management of household packaging and paper supplied or distributed to Saskatchewan households by businesses. 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.

The packaging and paper regulations recently went through a review and engagement process, resulting in amendments to the regulations. The Household Packaging and Paper Stewardship Program Regulations, 2023 came into effect on March 31, 2023. For now, the changes will not impact household recycling programs. The existing Multi-Material Recycling Program will continue to be in effect until a new province-wide program for packaging and paper begins its phased-in implementation.
