July 22, 2011—The British Columbia Government has amended the provincial Recycling Regulation to officially change the launch date for the CESA Small Appliance Recycling Program to October 1, 2011.
Based on this new program launch date, collection of accepted end-of-life (EoL) small and portable appliances and the introduction of fees for CESA members will now start on October 1, 2011.
The requirement for CESA members to report on sales of regulated small appliance products will also commence on October 1, 2011. The first fee report and remittance is due from CESA members in November for sales made in the month of October.
This new timeline replaces the previously scheduled launch date of August 1, 2011.
CESA appreciates the preparations made to date by all program members and stakeholders, and we look forward to working together on a successful launch and province-wide rollout of the program.
