Hazardous Waste Fee Increase Effective January 1, 2016

     Posted by LEHDER News on

HWIN Fee IncreaseIn August 2015, the MOECC proposed a regulation to amend O. Reg. 347 under the Environmental Protection Act to raise the tonnage component of the Hazardous Waste Fee.  LEHDER's blog post from August is available here.

Regulation 347 has been amended for the increase to Hazardous Waste Fees.  Effective January 1, 2016, the tonnage component will be increased from $10 to $20 per tonne for hazardous waste transferred or disposed of between January 1, 2016 and December 31, 2016.  This will be increased further to $30 per tonne as of January 1, 2017.

If you ship only liquid industrial waste, the increase will not impact you as there are no tonnage fees associated with this waste.

The ministry will work with businesses to ensure that the transition is as efficient as possible.  Options to improve service delivery and reduce administrative burdens on generators are also currently being explored.

For contact and additional information, please view Environmental Registry posting 012-3915.
