Between 2022 and 2024, the <23L container collection program will undergo a gradual change that will align it with other provinces, enabling farmers to bring back these containers to their local retail outlets.
The change is being phased in gradually to reduce the burden on retail and municipal services, and to increase convenience for farmers who can now bring the containers back to the retail outlets that they frequent.
We’d like to thank all municipal collection partners who have provided such excellent services to the program over many years, as well as our retail collection partners who are adding this new element to their services, and growers in both provinces for continuing to do your part to ensure that these containers can be recycled into new products and packaging!
