Manitoba HHW stewardship

The Manitoba Department of the Environment recently released a draft regulation for industry stewardship on household hazardous waste, including: batteries, paint, pesticides, flammable gas, solvents, swimming pool chemicals, pharmaceuticals, liquid fuels, corrosives, and electrical and electronic equipment.

The proposed regulation would require industry to have stewardship programs ready by fall 2002, and underway by January 2003.
