Re-Trac Announces official launch of the Municipal Measurement Program (MMP)
The goal of the MMP is to harmonize the measurement of material management programs and to provide municipalities with decision-making tools that can improve recycling program performance.
The MMP is designed and delivered by The Recycling Partnership and Re-TRAC Connect to provide municipalities with a robust and accessible materials management program analysis and planning tool.
It was also designed, with industry assistance, to standardize terminology and harmonize methodologies in support of consistent measurement across the U.S. and Canada.
What is the MMP?
The Municipal Measurement Program is a free Program Assessment and Planning Tool that delivers insights and actionable recommendations to municipal waste management agencies. By completing the program assessment surveys, municipalities can generate a range of performance, benchmarking, and recommendation reports.
Why is the MMP so important?
Municipalities face a variety of challenges when it comes to reducing the amount of waste their communities produce. Program managers rarely have enough time or money to properly measure the progress they are making toward achieving their diversion goals. Tracking important performance metrics and researching program improvement options can also be challenging. Without efficient access to reliable program performance reports, municipal staff can struggle to identify the best course of action to improve recycling.
So what can municipalities do to overcome these challenges and improve their waste & recycling programs? Join the MMP!
