Municipal SMMP Draft Credit 1: Materials Processing Infrastructure and Market Development Policy (x points)

Intent:

To support economic development by increasing local and/or regional processing infrastructure and markets for recovered materials.

Requirements:

Develop and adopt a policy that facilitates and supports the development of public and/or private processing and manufacturing infrastructure for recovered materials and incentives for purchasing the output of these facilities.

Potential Strategies:

  • Convene an enabling board to support local economic development through material recovery and processing infrastructure.
  • “Buy local” and “buy recycled” content incentives in procurement. Incentives can include low-interest loans, grants, technical assistance and business development and marketing support.
  • Streamline the project development process for qualifying projects, including accelerating permitting, fee or tax reductions, etc.
