TORONTO — GFL Environmental Inc. says it has formed the Resource Recovery Alliance to help product and packaging companies meet their responsibilities under Ontario’s blue box recycling program.
The company says the alliance will become a producer responsibility organization under the province’s new legislation and will be integrated within GFL’s service offerings.
GFL also says it has signed a deal to acquire the Canadian Stewardship Services Alliance, which provides management and administrative services to businesses to meet their recycling obligations.
Terms of the acquisition were not immediately available.
GFL CEO Patrick Dovigi says RRA will combine the waste management firm’s experience in North America’s resource recovery sector with CSSA’s leadership in compliance and administration of recycling programs across Canada.
The acquisition of CSSA, which is subject to customary closing conditions, is expected to close in the third quarter of 2021.
