Introduction of new material sub-category
As previously announced, MMSM has added a new material category to the Steward Reporting system. This year, stewards will be asked to identify packaging related to Household Hazardous Waste products. The MMSM fees on these materials are exactly the same as on other packages that use these materials. By separating the packaging related to Household Hazardous Waste products in the system now, we will gather information to identify materials that may become part of the Household Hazardous Waste program, when it is phased in this spring. We are committed to preventing ‘double reporting’ by stewards and have set up this system as a first preventative measure. To find out more, please see the new “2012: New Material Sub-category (HHW)” FAQs on our website
