In order to be eligible for participation in the ePilot Competition the following ePilot Program Requirements must be met:
Registered Electronics Municipal Collection Site Pilot Program Requirements Sign-Off form completed and submitted to ARMA.
Electronic Funds Transfer Agreement completed and submitted to ARMA.
Expanded Electronics Pilot Program signage posted / installed at your collection site.
All municipalities currently registered to participate in the ePilot Program and meeting all ePilot program requirements will automatically be entered in the ePilot Competition. If you have not yet submitted your ePilot Program Sign-Off or EFT Agreement and have not yet posted your ePilot signage, please do so and submit to email@example.com.
COMPETITION ENTRY PERIOD
The ePilot Competition will run for a 16-month period, beginning (retroactively) as of September 1, 2020, and concluding December 31, 2021.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE
Each municipality that has registered to participate in the ePilot and is currently meeting program requirements as outlined above, will be registered to participate in the Competition. If a municipality wishes to participate in the Competition but has not yet submitted their required paperwork or posted the required signage, official tonnage count will be calculated from the date that all requirements have been met.
All registered collection sites within a municipality will compete together as a team (this is not an individual collection site competition).
Points will be awarded based on the weight of ePilot materials collected. Due to the differing sizes of municipalities, these points will be distributed on a per capita basis so that each municipality competes on a level playing field.
Weights will be based on the scale tickets submitted with your ePilot claims. Due to differing sizes of municipalities, point will be distributed on a per capita basis.
ePilot Quarterly Claims must be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org according to the ePilot claims schedule. If claims are not submitted on time or paperwork is not complete, the tonnage indicated on the claim will not count towards the Competition.
If processors or field staff identify materials arriving at a processor site that are improperly sorted or separated e.g. if there is commingling of ePilot and regular Program materials, points will be deducted.
SELECTION OF WINNER
At the end of the 16-month ePilot Competition, ARMA will review each municipality’s claims to determine which municipality collected the most ePilot material per capita. Points will be awarded as follows:
10 kg ePilot Material Collected = 1 Point Improper Sorting / Separation = 5% Reduction of Points per instance
At the end of the competition all points will be tallied and then be adjusted on a per capita basis.
Total Points ÷ Number of Residents x 100 = Overall Score
The municipality with the most ePilot material collected per capita will be awarded the title of ePilot Municipal Competition CHAMPION!
