Regulation

Manitoba’s Packaging and Printed Paper Stewardship Regulation is intended to strengthen support for Manitoba’s multi-material recycling program. It is a regulation of the Waste Reduction and Prevention (WRAP) Act.

The Regulation makes the “stewards” of packaging and printed paper responsible for organizing and supporting a program to recover those materials. Stewards are companies and people who are the first importers or first sellers of packaging and printed paper in Manitoba.
