In the meantime, Delta and Langley Township will continue to use their own collection system.
Delta Mayor Lois Jackson said the risk of signing up was too great, noting that MMBC did not guarantee expected revenue from selling goods such as paper, tin and plastic because it relied on market prices.
This is particularly disturbing, she said, because the press is hesitant to sign a contract with MMBC.

If the project does not meet expectations, the municipality may give a notice six months in advance to withdraw from the project.

The MMBC program will enable residents to recycle New category packages that are not common in existing roadside or warehouse recycling programs, including milk cartons, plastic foam packaging, flower pots, aluminum foil packaging, plastic film packaging and beverage cups of certain types.

In order to comply, these businesses must calculate the amount of packaging and printing paper they distribute to consumers.
MMBC then allocates fees and uses revenue to pay municipal Blue-
Box shows or other business shows.
MMBC expects the system to charge about $0. 11 billion a year.
Where did the money go?
Alan Landon, general manager of MMBC, said the fees charged from the business represent the net cost of the project.
Any excess income from the sale of goods will then be returned to these businesses to help pay the cost.
Landon, who doesn\'t know how much revenue it will bring from selling recyclable items, said it will depend on the market value of various items.

Among them, 630,000 tons were recovered and 650,000 tons were imported into the landfill.

Must the municipalities give up their blue color? box collection? No.
According to The MMBC program, there are three options for municipalities.
The first was adopted by most Vancouver municipalities, allowing the city to continue to operate its own blue-
Box collection system and receive \"award payment\" from MMBC, which reserves the right to process and sell recyclable items in a blue box.
MMBC estimates that the incentive rate per household is $32 to $36, or $30-million-

Without the box collection of MMBC rewards, MMBC was subsequently unable to process and sell recyclable items.
The third option to be chosen by the places donated by Gao Guilin, Anmore and the university is to have MMBC hire contractors to provide free roadside pick-up service directly to the city.
What can be collected under MMBC system? B. C.
Residents will be able to recycle new packaging categories that are not common in current roadside or warehouse recycling plans.
Glass must be separated to prevent contamination of recyclable items;

Must business be a part of MMBC?
Businesses are not obliged to join MMBC but must comply with recycling regulations.
How they follow is their choice, and businesses that choose not to join MMBC can make their own management plans.
