Good news for small business

The New Westminster Chamber of Commerce is applauding the province for exempting small business from recycling fees being imposed with the introduction of Multi Material BC (MMBC).

The agency will be targeting packaging and printed paper with fees that will go into effect in May.

But the province has announced an exemption for B.C. businesses with annual revenues less than $1 million, that produce less than a tonne of packaging and printed paper annually, and/or have only one retail outlet.
