Flat Fee Reports

The Recycle BC, MMSW and MMSM programs offer flat fee reporting for organizations supplying low volumes of designated packaging and paper product. Flat fee reporting options vary by program - see the links below for details.

Eligible organizations can choose to pay a flat fee rather than submit a detailed annual report of material types and quantities, and then be invoiced in accordance with the respective program’s annual fee schedule.

A reminder that before filing a report for a given period, you will need to Confirm your Obligation and your eligibility to pay a flat fee.  The steps below outline how to file a flat fee report on the WeRecycle Portal. Contact Customer Relations at or 1 (888) 980-9549 with any questions.

Start a Flat Fee Report

From the home page, launch the 'Start a New Flat Fee Report' tile. 


  1. Choose the type of program you would like to file a flat fee report for.
  2. Use the dropdown menu to select the period for which you would like to report.
  3. Choose the program you would like to file a flat fee report for. Only programs where you have confirmed "obligated" and not already started a report will appear here. 
  4. Click 'Continue' to proceed. 


Select Threshold

Now, click the threshold that represents your supply. 

  1. Click a threshold to select it. 
  2. Organizations always retain the choice to file a flat fee report or file a detailed report, where the number of kg supplied for each material is reported, along with a detailed description of the methodology and a list of each brand included in the report. Click this button to stop filing a flat fee report and file a detailed report instead.
  3. Click 'Save' at any time to save this report for later. Note that, once saved, if you decide to instead file a detailed report, you will need to contact Customer Relations. 
  4. Click 'Continue' to save your report. Click 'yes' in the pop-up that appears if you would like to proceed to submission. 




Lastly, review your information and submit. 

  1. Review the information pertaining to your report. 
  2. Read the terms and conditions for low volume reports. 
  3. Click the check box to accept the terms and conditions. You will not be able to click submit until this box is checked. 
  4. Click 'Submit' to complete your report. 



You're done! Contact Customer Relations at or 1 (888) 980-9549 for assistance at any time.
