Do I need to report transportation packaging?

Where a steward supplies PPP to the industrial, commercial or institutional (IC&I) sector and the material is not disposed of in the residential waste stream, this constitutes material which is not designated by the programs. It can include corrugated or boxboard shipping cases, plastic pallet wrap or any other material used for the delivery of the product to a retail outlet but is disposed of or recycled through the commercial waste stream and is never provided as packaging to the consumer. Stewards must be able to demonstrate with auditable data that the packaging was supplied only to ICI customers and never supplied to residential consumers and was never managed in the residential waste stream. Stewards must retain all supporting documentation regarding any materials excluded from their report as they may be required to substantiate the exclusion of this material by providing auditable data upon request.
