    The Government of Saskatchewan held an online consultation from October to December 2017 on the development of household hazardous waste product stewardship and recycling regulations. Stakeholders and interested groups had 60 days to review the Summary of Proposed HHW Regulations and complete an online survey. Survey results and feedback have been summarized in a What We Heard document. The feedback gained will help inform the content of the proposed regulations, and ensure that a household hazardous waste program will meet the needs of Saskatchewan residents, keeps pace with changing times, and leads to positive environmental, social and economic outcomes.
