Confused about the MECP’s RPRA Waste Compliance or Hazardous Waste Program (HWP)?
The Provincial Ministry of Environment, Conservation and Parks (“MECP”) has again amended Regulation 347, which will substantially affect your waste management program effective January 1, 2023. That date, however, will be too late for you to make changes to keep you in hazardous waste compliance in a timely manner.
The old HWIN will soon be gone, replaced by the new Hazardous Waste Program (HWP), and its registry will open on November 15, 2022.
These will be the major changes:
- No more annual registrations for each of your generating facilities. The registration fees will be replaced with a “fee per digital manifest” system.
- No more paper manifests. This will be replaced by a digital reporting service.
There are three things for you to first consider:
- Be your own “delegate”
- Or “fully delegate” to a RPRA service provider (Authorized Generator Delegate in Ontario)
- Or “partially delegate” to a service provider
Not sure what to do? We are here to help with hazardous waste compliance support.
We recommend you seriously consider the “full delegation” path because you would seamlessly remain in control of your waste management program, while we handle your digital manifests, pay your fees, and make your reports. In this case, you would focus on your business as we continue to do what we have been doing for over 30 years – collection and disposal of hazardous and non-hazardous wastes.
