In her report released today, Auditor General Bellringer revealed that one of her priorities for 2015/2016 will be to begin a review of:
"The effectiveness of the Ministry of Environment’s oversight of product stewardship (recycling) with a focus on Multi-Materials BC."This is an important and necessary step that I have been working towards since 2014.
