MMBC’s Approach to Collecting PPP

Under the PPP Stewardship Plan, MMBC’s approach to collecting PPP is to provide opportunities for those currently collecting PPP to collect PPP in May 2014 under contract to MMBC.

Local governments providing residential PPP or garbage curbside collection in November 2012 will be offered a collection incentive to provide PPP curbside collection in May 2014.  MMBC will also offer a collection incentive to local governments and qualified private companies and not-for-profit organizations to provide collection of PPP from multi-family buildings and to operate depots to accept PPP from residents.

For more information, refer to Section 4 of the MMBC PPP Stewardship Plan, April 8, 2013.
