Funding to operate these diversion programs in the area comes from three sources. Municipal funding through your property taxes, revenue from the materials collected and sold as well as funding received by Industry Funding Organizations (IFO) who levy fees from product stewards (manufacturers and 1st Importers). This is referred to as Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR). There are separate stewards for each of the Blue Box, Municipal Hazardous and Special Waste program, and the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Programs.
The amounts of funding municipalities receive from Industry Funding Organizations is based on tonnages collected from the previous year reported to Waste Diversion Ontario.
