Table of Fees
To determine their contributions, most Stewards are required to file Steward’s Reports with MMSM and pay fees based on an applicable fee schedule. The fees are calculated on a per-material basis in each program year and automatically programmed within the online reporting system.
Four-Step Fee Methodology
The Four-Step Fee Methodology was approved in 2016 following extensive steward consultation.
Fee methodologies are an allocation tool used to determine each material’s share of the total amount stewards must pay to finance recycling programs for packaging and printed paper. Each year, material fee rates (expressed in cents per kilogram) are determined by dividing the allocated dollar amount for a material by the number of supplied tonnes of that material.
