Urgent: Update on Steward Exit and your Responsibility to Report Worthington Pressurized Containers

 

Dear ,

 

As you are aware, Stewardship Ontario undertook a review of the pressurized container category, which included contacting stewards and discussing their current reporting in this material category. As part of this effort, we also carried out investigations and a legal review of the residency status of stewards in this category.

 

Following our investigations, it was ultimately deemed that Worthington Cylinders Corp. does not have residency in Ontario, therefore placing the obligation to report and pay fees for Worthington branded pressurized containers on the first importers. Worthington brands that you will need to start reporting on are:

  • Worthington
  • Coleman
  • Balloon Time
  • Bernzomatic

Consequently, for your next MHSW report [i.e., your 2014 Q4 Report (Q3 Data)], you will need to report on any Worthington pressurized containers that you supply into Ontario.

 

To determine which types of pressurized containers stewards are obligated to report, please consult page seventeen of the MHSW Rules. For further information on how to report, please see A Note on Reporting Methodology, which details how to report for refillable and non-refillable pressurized containers.

 

If you have any questions, please get in touch with your Steward Services team at 1-888-980-9549 or werecycle@stewardshipontario.ca

 

Thank you,

Steward Services
