These Regulations come under the Waste Reduction and Recovery Act.

Starting February 1, 2016, new fees and container surcharges will come into effect.
We have made every effort to ensure the Summary is accurate. If you find any contradictions between it and the Regulations – the Regulations prevail. Please contact the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, GNWT if you notice any errors or omissions, or want to suggest ways to improve this Summary. Call 867.873.7654 in Yellowknife.

The Summary starts with definitions of words from the Regulations that you should understand. We organized the rest of the Summary based on what different people must do to follow the laws:
