·         What is actual tonnage?

 

o   Participants receive reimbursements based on how much they recycled in 2012. To find out how much you recycle, you can ask your contractors to weigh your materials. Many contractors are already providing this information to their consumers. Some provide the tonnage upon request. For municipalities that operate their own recycling programs, you will need a scale to weigh your materials. We accept weight receipts from local grain elevators, trucking firms and private scale operators.

 

·         What is estimated tonnage?

 

o   From time to time, private contractors are unable to provide tonnage information due to scale malfunction. If your recycler cannot provide actual tonnage volumes, then a contractor or mill has to provide you with their best estimate in writing. The estimate may be a letter or invoice that clearly identifies the estimated volume. A copy of this estimate has to be attached to the Receipt Submission Form and submitted to SUMA.

 

Under the proposed province-wide Multi-Material Recycling Program, to be launched in the near future, all municipal recycling operations should expect to provide actual tonnage data. It is therefore beneficial for municipalities to determine their method of finding this information.
