MMSW Program Plan Consultation


The Household Packaging and Paper Stewardship Program Regulations, 2023 (“the Regulation”) was released and came into effect on March 31, 2023. This will require the transition to a full extended producer responsibility (EPR) model, whereby producers assume operational and financial responsibility for collecting and recycling packaging and paper products in Saskatchewan. A Program Plan, fully consulted on with stakeholders, must be submitted to the Ministry of Environment by September 27, 2023.

MMSW Program Plan

Multi-Material Stewardship Western (MMSW) is pleased to provide its draft Household Packaging and Paper Stewardship Program Plan (“Program Plan”) for stakeholder feedback. The Program Plan describes MMSW’s objectives, commitments and a number of transition phases that will be implemented as the program transitions from a shared responsibility model to a system that is entirely managed and operated on behalf of its producer members.

MMSW is working with the national, not-for-profit producer led producer responsibility organization (PRO), Circular Materials, to provide Saskatchewan residents and producers with the benefits of a nationally integrated approach to recycling.
