In February 2018, OES received direction from the Minister of the Environment and Climate
Change (MOECC) regarding the wind up of the Ontario Electronic Stewardship (OES) program.
At that time, the original wind up date directed was June 30th, 2020.
An amendment to the wind up date has been received July 2nd, 2019 from the Ministry of Environment,
Conservation and Parks. The OES program will now cease operations as of December 31st, 2020.
Until operations wind up, OES is pleased to provide safe, secure recycling for all Ontarians
and we look forward to continuing to provide this service until wind up.
OES is pleased to advise that the proposed wind up plan for the OES WEEE waste diversion
program has been provided to the Resource Productivity and Recovery Authority (RPRA).
RPRA will be reviewing and consulting on the wind up plan content in 2019.
