Reporting deadline: May 31 (extended to July 31 in 2020)
Once you have determined that you are an obligated steward or are signing up as a voluntary steward and have registered (and signed a Membership Agreement), it is time to begin collecting data for your report.
Each designated packaging and paper product material is associated with a fee rate. For each obligation year, fee rates are carefully calculated to ensure fairness and to cover the costs associated with collection, transportation and processing of each material.
A list of voluntary and resident stewards for each program will be posted, making it easier for retailers and other first importers to understand which suppliers’ products to include or exclude from their reports.
