Product Care Ontario solvent members:
As directed by the ON MECP, Product Care received surplus funds from Stewardship Ontario (SO) of $1,240,400 which have been applied as fee reductions for the solvent members of Product Care’s Ontario Industry Stewardship Plan (ISP).
As previously announced, the SO solvent surplus fee reduction, which started in 2020, will be completed by the end of June, 2021.
Upon review, it has been decided to extend the Ontario solvent fee reduction through September 2021 (reported in October 2021) using Product Care ON solvent ISP reserve funds. The new Hazardous and Special Products regulation comes into effect October 1, 2021.
The method of accepting the solvent fee reduction through the EHF reporting portal will continue. The extended solvent fee reduction will be subject to adjustments and reconciliation as required.
