Multi-Material Stewardship Western is excited to join the Canada Plastics Pact as an Implementation Partner.

MMSW works with more than 500 municipalities, First Nations communities and regional waste authorities, providing funding for the delivery of recycling services. The service agreements currently in place reflect residential recycling of waste packaging and paper in over 85% of Saskatchewan households. It’s through these partnerships MMSW has supported these collectors effectively recycle residential packaging and paper since the program launch in 2016. We are proud to play a role in supporting the responsible management of plastic packaging through the value chain. Through a partnership with the Canada Plastics Pact, we will work with various stakeholders to discover and implement innovative solutions for tackling plastic waste and pollution.

“MMSW is proud to join the Canada Plastics Pact as it brings together stakeholders across the plastics value chain. We are prepared and motivated to support this collaborative effort to harmonize the life cycle of plastic in Canada. Residents and the environment we all share, will benefit as the Canada Plastics Pact and partners work toward common goals.”
