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.
The MARR Board includes the following representatives:
- Warrington Ellacott - Whirlpool Canada LP
- Jeffrey Van Damme - Samsung Electronics Canada Inc.
- Meagan Hatch - Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers Canada (AHAM Canada)
- Kimberlee Johnson - Danby Appliances
- Grant Garrard - The Home Depot Canada
- Jordane Ferron - Lowe’s of Canada
- Greg Wilson - Retail Council of Canada
- Julie Yan - Hudson’s Bay Company
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.
On June 29, 2017, the Major Appliance Recycling Roundtable submitted the BC Major Appliance Stewardship Plan (2017-2021) to the BC Ministry of Environment and Climate Change Strategy. The plan and subsequent revision (January, 2018) was approved Ministry on August 7, 2018 pending the development of targets that required operational history.
