Handling Commissions

 
What are Handling Commissions?
 

A Handling Commission is the amount paid by the Collection System Agent or a Collection Service Provider to a depot operator for containers collected from that depot.  Depots are paid to collect, sort and prepare containers for shipment.  Every three years, the BCMB ’s Board of Directors may commence a Handling Commission Review to determine and set handling commissions for the following three-year period.   

Handling commissions for each material stream can be found in the Handling Commission By-law. Click here to visit the ’Governing Documents’ webpage where you will find the By-law.
