Beginning January 1, 2023, under Ontario Regulation 522/20: Electrical and Electronic Equipment (EEE Reg), there are new requirements for producers who supply obligated lighting products into Ontario, to collect and recycle lighting products at their end-of-life.
Product Care Recycling is a not-for-profit, industry organization providing “Extended Producer Responsibility” (“EPR”) programs to producers of lighting and other designated products across Canada and in the US.
We are a registered Producer Responsibility Organization (PRO) in Ontario setting up a comprehensive lighting recycling program to help ensure lighting producers who register with Product Care Recycling meet their obligations that come into effect January 1, 2023.
What we are doing for our producers:
- Setting up a collection network across Ontario
- Working with haulers and processors to ensure lighting material is tracked and recycled in accordance with regulatory requirements
- Conducting promotion and education in accordance with regulatory requirements
- Conducting regulatory reporting

Producers of obligated lighting products supplied into Ontario will also be required to register with and report to the Resource Productivity and Recovery Authority (RPRA), the regulatory body in Ontario.
