Multi-Material Stewardship Manitoba Inc. (MMSM) is the not-for-profit, industry-funded organization that funds and provides support for the province’s residential recycling programs for packaging and printed paper.

MMSM works on behalf of the manufacturers, retailers and other organizations that supply packaging and printed paper to Manitobans. These businesses pay fees on the materials to MMSM, which are then used to reimburse municipalities for up to 80% of the net cost of the residential recycling system.

Our goal is to promote the reduction, reuse and recycling of the materials managed in our program.
