Designated Materials Recycling Regulation

In late 2013, the Alberta government consulted on proposed changes to Alberta's recycling regulatory framework. Consultation details and results can be found at: http://esrd.alberta.ca/waste/default.aspx

Based on the results of these consultations, policy research, and data analysis, regulatory amendments are being developed to:

  • Consolidate Alberta's eight existing recycling regulations under one regulation - the Designated Materials Recycling Regulation;
  • Remove specified maximum environmental fees from regulation while still ensuring consumer protection;
  • Expand the electronics program to include small appliances, audio/visual equipment, telecommunication equipment and power tools; and
  • Expand the used oil materials recycling program to include other automotive fluid containers.

The target for the completion of a regulatory package for decision makers' review is Winter 2015.

For the remaining items included in the designated materials recycling regulation consultation, the results indicated a need for additional research and discussion before final recommendations can be developed. In the months ahead, further consultation will take place on: extended producer responsibility and potential programs for managing packaging and printed paper and household hazardous waste.

Information and updates will continue to be posted on the Environment and Sustainable Resource Development Waste page at: http://esrd.alberta.ca/waste/default.aspx. Please continue to check the site periodically for further information.
