Need to slim down in Ontario

Companies that sell more than $2 million worth of products in the Canadian province of Ontario will want to put their packaging on a diet.

“This means North American manufacturers can no longer delegate recycling compliance to far-flung distributors,” she wrote.

In addition, the fee structure will cover inserts as well as exterior packaging. —AO
