The Major Appliances 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.
The MARR BC Major Appliance Stewardship Plan (the plan) 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 January 12, 2018, MARR submitted the plan to the BC Ministry of Environment and Climate Change Strategy (the Ministry). The plan was approved Ministry on August 7, 2018 pending the development of targets that required some operational history. MARR is proposing changes to this plan in accordance with the approval letter received and as required by the approval letter public consultation will focus on:
- Incorporating financial performance targets
- Incorporating ODS removal targets and;
- Setting consumer awareness targets improving on the 2016 baseline data, annual consumer awareness survey requirements and corrective actions, along with timelines for implementation of those actions that MARR will take if consumer awareness is below the set targets.
