Waste Reduction and Prevention

In 1990, the Province passed The Waste Reduction and Prevention (WRAP). Act that provides a range of options to reduce solid waste.

Regulations under The WRAP Act support blue box recycling, tire recycling and used oil management and management of Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) and E-waste.

Stewardship corporations are in place to carry out waste reduction programs for packaging and printed paper, tires, and used oil, containers and filters.
