The Processor Incentive Program (PIP) provides financial support to OES-approved Primary Processors to provide collection, transportation and processing services for residential as well as IC&I WEEE.

There are four distinct material categories and two incentive payment levels for eligible Phase 1 and 2 WEEE Program materials, as illustrated in the table below. Non-eligible program material includes products used outside of Ontario and transported into the province for recycling or refurbishment.

Rates effective October 1, 2012. Payment levels are based on calculated recycling efficiency rates, and are as follows:

Material Categories
Level 1

Note to Processors who are OES Collection Sites

Processors who wish to participate in the PI Program are not eligible to operate as OES Collectors. Once a Processor signs a PI Agreement, the OES Collector Agreement will terminate along with access to collection resources (i.e., OES P&E materials, packaging materials, pick-up services for collected WEEE and the Collection Incentive).
