Ontario’s municipalities and brand owners are taking their dispute over Blue Box funding to arbitration. Under the Waste Diversion Act, 2002, s. 25(5) stewards are supposed to pay 50% of the net costs incurred by municipalities. In previous years, the parties have negotiated the amount to be paid. This year, as costs continue to rise, the negotiations failed, and the Waste Diversion Organization has announced that it directed the parties to go to arbitration. Our firm is honoured to be representing the Association of Municipalities of Ontario in this very important case.
