Reminder: GHG Reports Due by January 31, 2021

News posted on December 14, 2020

As you know, MMSW is preparing to track greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions associated with the program’s collection and recycling of residential waste packaging and paper to support the program’s Stewardship Plan requirements.

All MMSW collectors are required to submit 2020 operational data related to GHG emissions via the WeRecycle Portal by January 31, 2021.

If you have not done so already, we encourage you to connect with your sub-contractors and/or reporting partners to ensure you have all the data needed for your report.

Portal updates

There have been two minor updates to the WeRecycle Portal which will not affect your data preparation:
  1. “Partial” and “Full” load designations have been removed from the End Market Transportation materials list because the differentiation was not crucial to reporting.
  2. Collectors will be able to report kilometres driven by vehicle and fuel type. This option is available for those who cannot supply fuel usage in litres and must be requested.


Resources are available on the MMSW website to assist you with compiling and reporting your GHG data. These include reporting guides and FAQs.


If you have any questions, please contact us as soon as possible at  or 1-855-886-4558. We are available to assist in making the reporting process straightforward, while also ensuring that the data we receive is accurate.
