What is the Datacall?

The Datacall is the source of data for determining the net Blue Box system cost and for allocating funding under the Blue Box Program Plan. Each Ontario municipal program (municipality, recycling association, or First Nation) providing recycling services must complete the Datacall in order to be eligible for Blue Box funding. 

Walso use the Datacall to determine residential waste diversion rates by municipal program and the province overall.

Who Completes the Datacall?

A municipal program should complete the Datacall if it provided Blue Box collection (curbside or depot) and/or processing services to its residents in the previous year and if all the tonnes, costs and revenue associated with these services are not reported by another program.  

Municipal programs should also report the following municipally-managed residential solid waste management services (if applicable) in the Standard Datacall: 

  • Other (non-blue box) recyclable materials collection and/or processing 
  • Organic collection and/or processing 
  • Municipal Hazardous or Special Waste collection 
  • Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment collection 
  • Garbage collection and/or disposal

The Short Form Datacall is a streamlined version of the Standard Datacall developed for smaller municipalities. Eligible municipalities using the Short Form Datacall do not have to report any non-blue box information. 

While the Short Form Datacall still collects the necessary data for calculating the municipal Blue Box fundingmunicipalities that would like to have their diversion rates calculated will need to complete the Standard Datacall.
