Question C in Section 5 GAP asks for tonnes distributed for reuse through facilities operated directly by municipality. Full credit is given for reported tonnes in this question.
Additionally, the Datacall asks for tonnes distributed for reuse through facilities to which municipality provides no-charge disposal of residual waste. 10% of any tonnage reported in this field will be counted toward diversion.
Yes. The total MHSW tonnage collected may be reported in Section 5 GAP, question K.
The percentage of recycled and reused may be reported in question M.
Section 4 is a summary of data already entered in Section 3. It is good practice to review Section 4 to check for accuracy and completeness.
If the items are commingled and there is no way to report the tonnes separately, you can report them under Other C&D material.
Household shingles generated by your residents can be reported in Section 3.3: Non-Blue Box.
If the shingles are from a business or commercial source (including a private contractor, construction companies, etc.), they must be reported as IC&I because the material is being collected by a business and being brought to a depot/transfer station/landfill as an IC&I material.
This depends on the specifics of the arrangement. Please contact the Authority for further information and clarification at email@example.com.
In general, only residential WEEE collected by municipal efforts is reported in the Datacall.
No. Municipalities are still required to report the tonnes of WEEE collected. 80% of the material reported counts toward diversion.
A 20% residue rate is assumed for all municipal programs, regardless of whether they receive a different residue rate from their processor.
White goods, including small appliances, are to be reported in the WEEE tab of the Non-Blue Box Contracts/Services Section in Section 3.3.
Scrap metal, not including white goods, are to be reported in the Non-Blue Box Services tab – Other Recyclables sub-tab.
Municipalities no longer need to report Non-Blue Box data by municipal or private contract service type.
Instead, this information is to be consolidated and reported as services provided by both private contractors and services provided by municipal staff.
Yes. For all capital purchases (even those reported in previous years), the IC&I and Non-Blue Box percentages must be updated to the current year’s amounts.
The Net Residential Blue Box Cost (grey box on the right) must reflect the portion of the item that was used solely for Blue Box purposes in the current reporting year.
Example: A Depot/Transfer Building was purchased in 2017 for $100,000. 20% of the building was used for Non-Blue Box and 20% was used for IC&I, totaling a Net Residential Blue Box Cost of $64,000. In 2019, 20% of the building was still used for garbage, but only 10% of it was used for IC&I material. To reflect this change in the 2019 Datacall, the 2017 Depot /Transfer Building line item must be updated to 10% IC&I, and 20% Non-Blue Box. The Datacall automatically calculates the Net Residential Blue Box Cost to equal $72,000.00.
