will determine, by participant and material type, the QIP eligible material

and estimated payment, as follows:
1) For material purchased directly from curbside programs and dropoff or collection programs:
a) The residue or waste tons total will be determined by multiplying the received weight
tons by the residue or waste percentage.
b) The adjusted received weight tons will be determined by subtracting the residue or
waste tons from the received weight.
c) The total QIP weight will be determined by multiplying the adjusted received weight tons by
the statewide commingle rate.
i)
If the material is purchased from a registered Curbside Program, the
statewide commingled rate for Curbside Programs will be used.
ii)
If the material is purchased from a certified Dropoff or Collection Program, the
statewide commingled rate for Dropoff or Collection Program will be used.
iii)
A Community Service Program is a type of dropoff or collection program, if the
material is purchased from a Community Service Program, the statewide
commingled rated for a Community Service Program will be used.
d) For glass only, the total QIP weight for each color fraction (flint, amber, green, and mixed
color) glass will be determined by multiplying the total QIP weight for glass by a
percentage for each color fraction. The percentage of each glass fraction will be
estimated based on quarterly sampling to determine the amount (percentage) of color
sorted material derived from the outbound material. For example only, based upon the
2010 first quarter sampling: 30% flint, 15% amber, 15% green, and 40% mixed color
glass.
e) The total estimated QIP payment will be determined by multiplying the total QIP weight by
the applicable QIP Rate per ton.
2) For material purchased directly from certified processors:
a) A determination of non-qualifying material, if any, will be made and subtracted from the
total weight ticket to determine the Total Received Weight in tons.
b) The residue or waste tons total will be determined by multiplying the received weight
tons by the residue or waste percentage.
c) The adjusted received weight tons will be determined by subtracting the residue or
waste tons by the received weight.
d) The total QIP weight will be determined by multiplying the adjusted received weight tons by
the Statewide Average QIP Rate.
e) For glass only, the total QIP weight for each color fraction (flint, amber, green, and mixed
color) glass will be determined by multiplying the total QIP weight for glass by the
percentage for each glass color fraction. The percentage of each glass fraction will be
estimated based on quarterly sampling to determine the amount (percentage) of color
sorted material derived from the outbound material. For example only, based upon the
2010 first quarter sampling: 30% flint, 15% amber, 15% green, and 40% mixed color glass.
