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 support lighting producers who register with Product Care in meeting their EPR obligations that come into effect January 1, 2023.
Services for producers
- Setting up a collection network across Ontario
- Working with haulers and processors for the end-of-life management of lighting
- Conducting promotion and education
- 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. For more information about producer obligations and lighting products included under the EEE Reg, please contact RPRA at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1-833-600-0530.
Collection partners are an integral part of Product Care’s recycling programs. We work closely with collection sites on the types of containers and pick-up service needed to enable a value-added recycling service to consumers, businesses and the environment!
