Am I a Steward or Service Provider?

You are a Steward if you supply designated Packaging and Paper Product (PPP) or Hazardous Materials to consumers in a jurisdiction where stewardship regulations exist. Stewards can be brand owners, manufacturers, retailers, distributors, importers, e-commerce companies, and other kinds of organizations. Consult the Guidebook for Stewards to determine if your organization is a steward.

You are a Service Provider if you transport, collect or process designated Packaging and Paper Product (PPP) in a province where stewardship regulations exist or transport and process materials for the Municipal Hazardous or Special Waste (MHSW) program. Service Providers can include collectors, transporters, receiving facilities, depots, end markets, and other kinds of organizations.

If you have been instructed to create an account on the WeRecycle Portal, select the option that applies to you.
