Program Plan

The Program Plan was approved by the provincial government in September 2009. The plan:

  • sets out the key components of industry’s plan to collect waste packaging material and printed paper from households across Manitoba and divert it from landfill;
  • defines a funding formula that will be used to calculate industry payments (stewardship fees) as well as outline funding provisions to support market research, public education, and promote material reduction and recycling;
  • explains the method industry stewards will use to calculate and report the total generation and recovery of designated materials.
