News Release: Association of Municipalities of Ontario (AMO), dated February 18, 2005, Thanking Members for Responding to the Last AMO Alert on the Canadian Newspaper Association (CNA) and the Ontario Community Newspaper Association (OCNA) In-Kind Contribution to the Blue Box and Further Requesting that Council Adopt a Resolution in Support of AMO Member Feedback

RECOMMENDATION GC-56-2005:

Whereas Section 25 (5) of the Waste Diversion Act provides that where a waste diversion program is developed for blue box wastes it is to include payments to municipalities equal to 50% of the total net costs incurred by those municipalities as a result of the program;

And whereas, the Canadian Newspaper Association (CNA) and the Ontario Community Newspaper Association (OCNA) has negotiated directly with the Ministry of the Environment (MOE) to provide their share of payments to municipalities under the Blue Box Program Plan in the form of newspaper advertising instead of cash;

And whereas, most municipal recycling programs do not use newspaper advertising to communicate with their residents, but instead use such mediums as calendars, newsletters and flyers to communicate with their residents;

Now therefore be it resolved, that the Minister of the Environment be requested to amend the approval of the Blue Box Program Plan and the 2005 Stewards' Fees to eliminate the inclusion of in-kind newspaper advertising from the Canadian Newspaper Association (CNA) and the Ontario Community Newspaper Association (OCNA), and require CNA/OCNA to provide their payment in cash like all other obligated stewards;

And further, that the subject resolution be forwarded to the Association of Municipalities of Ontario (AMO) for their information.
