CCME has posted Best Management Practices for Disposal Bans, Levies and Incentives for End-of-Life Plastics.

The document identifies best management practices that support implementation of disposal bans, levies and incentives targeting end-of-life plastics. The plastics of interest include all plastic products such as durable and semi-durable plastic products, single-use plastics and plastic packaging. The document presents a toolbox of options that have been shown to work in some jurisdictions (e.g., a municipality, regional government, province, territory, state or country).

Regulatory, economic and fiscal measures can play an important role in supporting a circular plastics economy and highlight the value of these materials in the economy. This document addresses a priority action committed to in the Canada-wide Action Plan on Zero Plastic Waste: Phase 1.
