The Recycle BC, MMSW and MMSM programs offer flat fee reporting for stewards supplying low volumes of designated packaging and paper product. Flat fee reporting options vary by program - see the links below for details.
Eligible stewards 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.
- Recycle BC - low volume and flat fee reporting
- MMSW - low volume reporting
- MMSM - flat fee reporting
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 National Steward Services at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1 (888) 980-9549 with any questions.
