Each year, WDO requires municipalities to complete the Municipal Datacall in order to be eligible for funding for the Blue Box Program.
To be eligible for funding in 2015, Ontario Municipalities, First Nations, and Recycling Associations that provided Blue Box services during 2013 must complete the annual Datacall. In cases where the tonnage, costs, and revenues associated with these services are being reported by another municipal program, completion of the annual Datacall is not required.
The 2013 Municipal Datacall submission deadline is April 25, 2014 at 4:00 p.m. A copy of the Certification Document is due on May 2, 2014 at 4:00 p.m.
In addition, WDO requests the submission of tonnage data for all other waste materials it oversees, including hazardous or special waste, electrical and electronic, organics, garbage, and others. The data provided to WDO regarding these additional materials are valuable for calculating and analyzing diversion rates in Ontario.
If you require assistance with submitting your data, WDO provides online or phone support. A WDO representative will assist you in navigating the annual Datacall. WDO will also provide a limited number of onsite support visits between late February and the end of March. During these support visits, a WDO representative will review with you your general ledger records, invoices, contracts, cost allocations, and other data. To request online or onsite support, please email firstname.lastname@example.org by February 21, 2014.
