Payment & Compliance
Organizations that submit monthly Steward Reports can download electronic invoices through the OES Reporting and Remitting System.
Please note that invoices are not available by any other means including mail or email.
After logging into the Reporting and Remitting System, the primary or billing contact can download an invoice by clicking on the step for "Invoicing and Reports." Be sure to deactivate any pop-up blocker on your system or you may be prevented from downloading. Invoices are generated in an Adobe Acrobat (PDF) file format.
Please include HST in your submission of payment to OES.
Stewards (as well as their Remitters/Sub-Remitters) can make payments by cheque, through online electronic banking or through wire transfer.
- Cheques: payable to Ontario Electronic Stewardship and sent to 885 Don Mills Rd., Suite 400, Toronto, ON M3C 1V9.
- Wire Transfer: email firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
- Online Banking: contact your bank and request that Ontario Electronic Stewardship be added as a payee to your account. Online payments can be made through the following banking institutions: CIBC, BMO, Royal Bank, Bank of Nova Scotia, TD Canada Trust.
When paying your invoice by EFT or wire transfer, please include the OES invoice numbers being paid.
Non-complying Stewards may be subject to enforcement actions by the Ministry of the Environment as prescribed under Sections 36 - 41 of the Waste Diversion Act (WDA). Obligated Stewards and Remitters who fail to pay applicable EEE Fees may be subject to a penalty of 10% of the obligated EEE Fees due and payable. Interest may be charged at the Interest Rate (as defined in the Rules) on any outstanding balance due.
Companies who are registered with OES and current with their monthly reporting and fees are considered to in good standing with OES and, subsequently, in compliance with the Waste Diversion Act (WDA), and Program Rules.
