Submit a Diversion Report on Portal

Diversion Reports capture:

  • The type and weight of material that was Received at your Processing Facility
  • How the processed materials were managed at end of life (i.e. type and weight of material Recovered).

At a minimum, Diversion Reports must be submitted quarterly within 30 days of each quarter close as outlined in the table below:

Q1 January 1 - March 31 April 30
Q2 April 1 - June 30 July 31
Q3 July 1 - September 30 October 31
Q4 October 1 - December 31 January 31 (of the following year)
  • Reports can be submitted at any time during each quarter, up to the due date. Processors also have the option to report more frequently (such as weekly or monthly) if that is convenient for your company.
    • For example, you can submit Q1 reports from January 1 through to April 30 for materials managed up to March 31st
  • Any reports submitted after April 30th will be deemed a late Q1 report
