1 Geoff Love Market Development

2 Market Development Backgrounder 3 Part Presentation 1) Review 2003 Blue Box Recovery Rates 2) Present Market Development planned activities for 2005 & impact on fees 3) Invite comment for final input to Stewardship Ontario Board of Directors

3 Background Discuss market development activities as per approved Blue Box Program Plan (BBPP) – i.e. 50% Blue Box recovery by 2006 Recognize that Ministers request for 60% diversion of Blue Box materials by 2008 will likely require: –additional market development –enhanced recovery efforts (i.e. beyond approved plan)

4 Summary of 2003 Residential Blue Box Recovery by Material Category Material to 2003 % Change % of Total Blue Box Printed Paper 409,754430,6145.1%55.2% Paper-Based 133,740156, %20.1% Polycoat 1,2401, %0.2% Aluminum Cans 10,77610, %1.3% Steel Cans 33,47232, %4.2% Glass Total 106,097114,2497.7%14.7% PET Containers 15,89818,1206.0%2.3% HDPE Containers 8,96411, %1.5% Other Plastics 7,0675, %0.7% Plastics Total 31,92835, % Totals 727,007779,8447.3%100%

5 Blue Box Recovery Summary Approved BBPP target of 50% recovery by 2006 –system needed addition of about 35,000 tonnes/year of curbside recycling from 2002 to 2006 (i.e. a total of 145,000 tonnes) In 2003, over 53,000 more tonnes were recycled – up from about 33,000 more tonnes in 2002 Likely reached the 50% target (although all materials have not achieved the material specific goals in the BBPP) BBPP contains a three part market development program to meet material specific targets: mixed glass, green procurement & other material plans

6 Glass Market Development Investment Program Two Glass Funds 1.REOI (longer term) 2. Glass Business Planning/Feasibility Study: Glass Diversion Fund (nearer term)

7 1) REOI (longer term) Up to $2 M (from glass Stewards) for 2004/05 Initiating meetings with GTA municipalities re: mixed glass tonnes available Detailed RFP for qualified applicants (fall/winter) Glass Market Development Investment Program

8 2) Glass Business Planning/Feasibility Study: Glass Diversion Fund (nearer term) $500K business planning & feasibility study fund to support projects up to $25K (matching funding basis) e.g. local investment opportunities Funding guidelines now posted on Stewardship Ontario website - first project funding expected in fall 2004 Glass Market Development Investment Program PROGRAM GOAL - stabilize markets, higher value uses, reduce net costs by at least $10/tonne focused on GTA/Golden Horseshoe tonnes

9 Heard at July Consultation Five written responses to July 15 workshop materials: 1 steward; 4 material suppliers Common comments: –Quality control & increased recovery are of higher importance for most materials than market development –Need for regular state of the market meeting for all stakeholders –Limited interest in green procurement –Concern regarding Stewardship Ontarios role on the issue of cooperative marketing –Two targeted materials requiring market development are mixed broken glass & plastics #3 to #7

10 Stewardship Ontario Green Procurement Plans for 2005 BBPP commits Stewardship Ontario to a business planning process that examines potential benefits of launching a new green procurement program Steward reaction to research to date has been neutral at best. –Stewards want to see tangible benefits before making a major investment. –Whatever might be done must be voluntary in nature. Not seen as a 2005 high priority given other pressures & current overall system performance against 50% target

11 Green Procurement Recommendation Focus procurement activities on tangible opportunities (e.g. examine/promote glass-in- aggregate applications developed through the glass fund) Participate in MOE & /or WDO – led procurement discussions that may result from Ministers 60% goal On-going business planning to examine potential benefits & costs

12 Other Material Market Recommendations No substantial new Other Material market development activities recommended until 2005/2008 targets are established by Minister Initiate planning for film/other plastics REOI in mid 2005 (for 2006 fees) = $100K in 2005 fees Develop Enhanced Recovery program plan in 2005 (for 2006 implementation) based on detailed analysis of 02/03/04 datacall results Priorize least cost next tonne/enhanced recovery projects though E&E Fund in 2005
