(Jul. 28/14) Restaurants Canada emphasized the major progress our members have made in reducing the waste sent to landfills. In our submission to Nova Scotia Environment on extended producer responsibility, we explained that restaurateurs have incurred significant costs to cut waste through composting and recycling programs.
We also noted our concern with any new costs for members. If any new fees are imposed, we argued that the level of financial responsibility government expects of our industry should match the control we have over design, implementation and management of any new program.
