I supply decorative notebooks and daily planners bound in leather, plastic or metal in BC and SK. Am I obligated for all components?
Stewards are not required to report the leather or plastic or metal binding on the notebook or planners as this material is not designated. A steward may undertake a study to determine the proportion of paper that a consumer is likely to retain and not dispose of through the residential waste stream and deduct that portion of material from their steward report (i.e., disposed of in office, school, etc.). Stewards should retain the results of any study undertaken for the purpose of determining a deduction from their steward report for verification by the National Steward Services team. Please review the Deduction and Exclusion Policy for more details.
