Manitoba’s Packaging and Printed Paper Stewardship Regulation is intended to strengthen support for Manitoba’s residential recycling programs. 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.

In addition to the Packaging and Printed Paper Stewardship Regulation, stewards may wish to view two documents that provide more details on the MMSM Program. View Guideline for Packaging and Printed Paper Stewardship and Guideline for Plastic Bags.
