The Major Appliance Recycling Roundtable (MARR) is a not-for-profit stewardship agency created to implement and operate a stewardship plan for end-of-life major household appliances in the province of British Columbia (BC) on behalf of the major appliance "producers" who are obligated under the BC Recycling Regulation. The stewardship plan was developed jointly by the Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers Canada (AHAM Canada) and Retail Council of Canada (RCC) in response to the requirements of the BC Recycling Regulation.
MARR is governed by a Board of Directors of major appliance manufacturers and retailers. The MARR Board includes representatives from Whirlpool Canada, Mabe Canada, Samsung Electronics Canada, the Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers (Canada), the Home Depot Canada, Hudson's Bay Company, Sears Canada and the Retail Council of Canada.
The MARR stewardship plan received the approval of BC's Ministry of Environment on June 29, 2012, and today is the only approved stewardship plan for major appliances in the province. The MARR plan is focused on enhancing the performance and transparency of the existing market-based system of collecting and recycling major household appliances in BC.
