On March 6, the government of Ontario released a discussion paper on reducing litter and waste and a request for public feedback.
The discussion paper expands upon commitments in Preserving and Protecting our Environment for Future Generations: A Made-in-Ontario Environment Plan, posing questions to help guide future decision-making to divert more waste from landfill.
Restaurants Canada provided a submission in response to the discussion paper, addressing topics such as stewardship fees, food waste, recycling and single-use items.
If you have any questions or would like more information, you can get in touch with James Rilett, Restaurants Canada Vice President, Central Canada, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1-800-387-5649 ext. 4241.
