Blue Box Review
  • Minister directed WDO to
  • Conduct a review of BBPP
  • Use EPR principles to form framework for review
  • Consult with relevant stakeholders

4
Blue Box Review Issues
  • Program performance
  • Program has achieved 63 diversion
  • Target for next 5 years
  • Material specific performance
  • Targets by material for next 5 years
  • Consistency across municipalities
  • For materials collected
  • Problematic wastes e.g. 15 litre PET bottle
  • Managing through BBPP or other mechanisms

5
Blue Box Review Issues
  • Blue Box wastes from ICI
  • If how BBPP could be extended
  • Blue Box wastes collected outside of Blue Box
    system e.g. garbage litter
  • Collection options beyond municipal curbside
    depot
  • Stewardship for these options materials
    disposed as waste or litter
  • Additional Blue Box wastes
  • Reconsider BBPP definition to include other
    products covered by Blue Box Waste Regulation

6
Blue Box Review Issues
  • Environmentally responsible management
  • From collection to final market
  • Stewardship fees
  • Revising fees to increase diversion recycled
    content
  • EPR funding
  • Moving BBPP towards full EPR funding
  • Impact to management of municipal recycling
    programs

7
Blue Box Review
  • WDO consultation process likely to include
  • Survey of Ontario residents
  • Number surveyed sufficient to be statistically
    significant
  • Facilitated meetings with
  • Stewardship Ontario Board
  • AMO-AMRC Waste Management Task Force
  • OWMA Board
  • ENGOs
  • Other industry associations
  • Facilitated MIPC-Blue Box retreat

8
Blue Box Review
  • WDO consultation process likely to include
  • Posting of draft report for comment
  • Workshop/webcast to review draft report
  • Written submissions during consultation period
  • To BBPPReview_at_wdo.ca
  • Consultation plan backgrounder
  • Posted on WDO website
  • Likely early November

9
Blue Box Best Practices
  • MIPC-Blue Box established
  • BP Model Working Group
  • Review BP Study cost model parameters, data
    inputs, analog programs
  • BP Funding Distribution Working Group
  • Develop methodology based on BP
  • Under consideration
  • Base funding for all programs
  • Enhanced BP funding calculated using system
    of points for best practice activities
  • More information should be available at next ORW

10
More Blue Box
  • Plastics market strategy
  • Stewardship Ontario
  • Issued REOI received 7 responses
  • Issuing RFP for new processing capacity for rigid
    packaging 1 to 7 film plastic
  • WDO administration of CIF
  • Entered into agreement with SO AMO to support
    CIF Director being employed by AMO
  • Approved Strategic Plan, 2008 Operations Plan
  • Delegated authority to MIPC-BB CIF Committee to
    implement Operations Plan

11
MHSW
  • Phase 1 implementation issues
  • Delayed execution of municipal agreements
    development of commercial collection system
  • Some retailers charged visible fees on July 1
  • Consumers paying new fees but no new services
  • Phase 2 development issues
  • Exploration of substantive issues
  • Collection options to provide program
    accessibility
  • Residential collection, incentives, retail
    take-back
  • Transition from shared to full responsibility

12
WEEE
  • Phase 1 implementation issues
  • Service providers registering
  • Audits of processors to begin shortly
  • Concerns among some processers regarding
    methodology to allocate WEEE may limit
    investment in new capacity/technologies
  • Phase 2 development issues
  • Orphan equipment e.g. typewriters
  • Likely higher costs due to lower material revenue
  • Likely lower diversion due to higher of
    plastics
  • For which there are currently limited 3Rs markets

13
Used Tires
  • Program Request Letter (PRL)
  • Brand owners first importers
  • On-road off-the-road (OTR) tires
  • 90 diversion within 5 years
  • Higher value uses green technology
  • Address stockpiles as a priority
  • Vendor qualification standards
  • Tracking auditing

14
Used Tires - PRL
  • Minister directed
  • There shall be a single fee paid by the stewards
    that is associated with the program
  • Collectors participating in program shall not
    charge consumers additional fee for management of
    tires following removal from vehicle
  • Since
  • Stewards may choose to pass fee to customer as
    visible fee on new tire
  • Customers should not be charged an additional fee
    by retailers or municipalities for management of
    scrap tire

15
Used Tires Current System
  • Money tires track together
  • Retailers charge consumers up to 5/tire
  • Collectors pay haulers who then pay processors
  • System drives lowest cost management choice
  • As a result, tires are directed to TDF Ontario
    processors lack feedstock

16
Used Tires Program Plan
  • Stewards pay fees to OTS
  • OTS uses fees to pay for collecting, storing,
    transporting, processing and marketing scrap
    tires

17
Issues Under Discussion
  • Various processing incentives
  • For crumb rubber by mesh size fabricated
    products
  • Possibly manufacturing incentive to encourage
    creation of new products market demand
  • Hauler incentive to pick up transport
  • Likely on a distance quantity basis

18
Issues Under Discussion
  • How should haulers be paid?
  • Directly by OTS
  • Through collectors or processors
  • Possibly consolidation incentive
  • To accept tires from local haulers
  • To manage seasonal surge
  • Should program offer incentive to collection
    agents?
  • Or will collectors provide service at no charge?
  • Value of each financial incentive

19
Used Tires - Challenges
  • Layering stewardship program onto existing
    marketplace
  • Mature collection hauling system
  • gt8,000 collection points
  • 40 hauling companies
  • 3Rs processing capacity
  • lt 10 operating companies
  • With reported annual capacity for 5 to 9 million
    tires
  • Compared to 12 million tires generated annually

20
Used Tires - Challenges
  • Used Tires Plan due to Minister by December 31,
    2008
  • OTS asked WDO to request extension
  • WDO Board agreed to request 2 month extension to
    February 27, 2009
  • Decision at October 22 Board meeting
  • Request submitted to Minister October 23

21
