The Government of Yukon recognizes the impact of plastic waste and has committed, along with federal, provincial and territorial environment ministers, to work towards significant reductions in waste disposal and zero plastic waste in Canada.
One way in which the Yukon government is helping decrease plastic waste is through a proposed surcharge on single-use shopping bags received at point-of-sale. Yukon government is engaging retailers and industry on this proposed change, including the surcharge amount, implementation process, and administration of the program.
The Whitehorse Chamber of Commerce in partnership with Government of Yukon, Department of Environment is hosting a breakfast meeting to invite feedback from businesses likely to be affected by the proposed single-use plastic surcharge legislation.
Date: April 10, 2019
Time: 8:30am - 10:00am
Location: Westmark Whitehorse - meeting room 3
Light breakfast will be provided
