Registered Steward Lists
A list of voluntary and resident stewards for each program will be posted on CSSA’s and all programs’ websites – making it easier for retailers and other first importers to understand which suppliers’ products to include or exclude from their reports. Below you will find links to five lists; one for each of the provincial programs, and a national list that includes residency status on all stewards across all programs.
We’ve also included a change log so you can easily identify any changes to last year’s list and reason for the change. We know you may have revised your own lists throughout the year. In this case you can compare your own list to the steward lists to identify the changes most relevant to you.
Please note, the information contained in the steward lists is based on data provided to CSSA by stewards. CSSA relies on stewards communicating any changes to us that affect their account.
Sector-specific reporting tips are new this year to help stewards identify the proper material reporting categories for the common packaging and printed paper materials used by businesses in specific sectors. They have been tailored to address the most common questions received by the Steward Services team and the most common reporting errors in each industry sector.
Policies and procedures are developed to promote fairness for all stewards and to enable the stewardship programs to operate in a cost effective manner. The adjustment policy is not new but it is now captured in a policy document, below. Highlights of the policy are: Stewards can request adjustments to reports going back a maximum of two years from the report submission due date; and adjustments made as a result of a methodology change are not accepted.
