Government of Yukon seeks feedback on changes to Designated Materials Regulation

During broad public consultation in 2014, the Government of Yukon heard overwhelming support from Yukoners for a more modern recycling system. As we prepare to amend the Designated Materials Regulation to improve our system, we ask Yukoners and industry to offer feedback on the proposed product categories and surcharges – as well as the timing for when these changes should come into effect.  

Yukoners can provide their feedback before February 1, 2018. For further information on public meetings and to complete the survey, visit
