2.3.1 Exclusions: Materials that should be excluded from your report because they are not designated under the Programs

Some packaging or paper product materials are not designated by the Programs because the material is never supplied to a residential consumer or is not considered to be disposable packaging.  These are known as exclusions because the PPP was never designated.  Stewards do not need to include material which is “excluded” (i.e. not designated) in their Annual Reports

“Exclusions” are different from “Deductions”. In limited circumstances, stewards that complete and submit a Deduction Declaration Form may be permitted to deduct some designated packaging or paper product materials which are supplied to residential consumers. Deductions are discussed in section 2.3.2

The following subsections discuss the types of excluded packaging which do not need to be included in the stewards’ Annual Reports.
