Multi-Material British Columbia (MMBC) received approval from the BC Ministry of Environment for itsPackaging and Printed Paper (PPP) Stewardship Plan (April 8, 2013) on April 15, 2013. Implementation of the plan is now underway.
A key component of MMBC’s PPP Stewardship Plan is the offer of financial incentives to:
- local governments for curbside collection of packaging and printed paper (PPP), and to
- local governments, private companies and not-for-profit organizations for collection of PPP from multi-family buildings and the operation of drop-off depots to receive PPP from residents.
If a local government declines the incentive to provide curbside collection of packaging and printed paper, MMBC will contract with a private company selected through a competitive procurement process.
Below are links to documents that set out the collection financial incentives and related information for stakeholders to review in advance of the meeting and simultaneous webcast that MMBC is holding on Friday, June 7 to present the collection incentives.
