Is Ontario Electronic Stewardship attempting to control the marketplace by approving only a certain number of WEEE processors in Ontario?

0

It is not the intention of OES to control or limit the number of WEEE processors receiving material under the program. However, in order to ensure minimum environmental, health and safety standards within WEEE processing operations, OES has implemented a stringent “Processor Qualification and Selection Process” under which these standards must be met. Only those processors that meet OES’ standards will be considered to provide services to OES. The WEEE allocation process by which OES-approved processors receive waste electronics for processing is designed to ensure program effectiveness and efficiency through a competitive RFP process under which OES-approved processors must bid for set quantities of WEEE. OES is committed to review the allocation process to ensure program objectives are effectively met. This process will include on-going consultation with stakeholders during program implementation, and throughout the first year of the program at various stages.
