Toronto — A total of more than $6.7 million was mailed last week to 190 Ontario municipalities to help pay for residential recycling programs. The money was gathered under the terms of the provincial Waste Diversion Act, 2002, which mandates that brand owners and first importers who use packaging or printed papers that are handled by Ontario municipal waste management programs to contribute to a fund that offsets the cost of such programs by 50 percent.
