MMBC’s mandate is to provide incentives to local governments, First Nations, private companies and non-profits to continue collecting packaging and printed paper under contract with MMBC.
Local governments providing residential packaging and printed paper or garbage curbside collection in November 2012 were initially offered a collection incentive to provide collection in May 2014. MMBC also offered a collection incentive to local governments and qualified private companies and non-profit organizations to provide collection of packaging and printed paper from multi-family buildings and to operate depots.
MMBC’s collection system consists of collectors that executed agreements with MMBC by November 30, 2013, and respondents that were selected through a Request for Proposals.
MMBC’s Packaging and Printed Paper Stewardship Plan (Stewardship Plan) aims to create greater access to residential packaging and printed paper recycling throughout BC. Each year, MMBC will look for opportunities to expand its collection network to better service BC residents.
