To transfer waste through Metrc to a disposal service, we will...

1. Package a product, entering no waste for the conversion, then

2. Package MMJ Waste from the remaining weight


3. Package MMJ Waste directly from harvest

4. Transfer MMJ Waste

Let's look at an example of packaging Bulk Concentrate from Flower & Buds and then packaging the remaining weight (waste) into MMJ Waste.

Part I: Package Bulk Inventory

On the Inventory page, click the clipboard icon on your bulk package to copy the tag number, then click Package:

Let's say we are making 500g of Bulk Concentrate from 2,270g Flower & Buds. Under Amount to Use we will only enter the amount of concentrate produced:

At the bottom of the page, we enter the final weight of the concentrate, and we will not enter a waste value (keep as zero):

Now let's create our MMJ Waste package for the remaining Flower & Buds weight.

Part II: Package MMJ Waste

Copy the tag number from our remaining package weight(s) to package into MMJ Waste and go to Package:

Here is what your window will look like to package into MMJ Waste:

1. Select Bulk Inventory

2. Under "What are we making?" select MMJ Waste. Then, select your product name in the next field that appears

  • Tip: Don't have an MMJ Waste product? Click Create New Product Template to make one.

3. Select a Strain

4. Paste your inventory ID (tag number) into the search bar or filter by Type, Strain, or Room to locate your source bulk inventory

5. Click All to use the full quantity to create your MMJ Waste or enter a partial value

6. Enter the total grams of the MMJ Waste to create (the same value as in step 4)

7. Check the checkbox next to "This product requires QA re-testing" to reset the MMJ Waste's QA status

  • Note: If your package has "Submitted for Testing" status, Metrc will block your Waste transfer. This step will reset the QA status to prevent that.

8. Keep the waste entry as 0 (this field is not applicable to MMJ Waste)

9. Select a room to place the MMJ Waste package into

10. Double check your new tag to use

11. Click Preview Convert to review the convert details in the next window, then click Convert to finish!

Now you will find the MMJ Waste package on the Inventory Overview!

Part III: Package MMJ Waste from Harvest

1. On the Grow Overview, select the applicable Harvest from the Harvest column

2. In the Package Harvest Batch window:

A. Click New Package

B. Select MMJ Waste from the drop-down

C. In the MMJ Waste Line item, enter the Waste Quantity

  • Note: Use the Default Product to create an MMJ Waste Package, select an existing custom template from the drop-down, or click Create New Template to create a new MMJ Waste Product Template.

D. Optional: Click Collect Additional to keep the harvest open to enter future harvest weights

E. Click Create

You can view the MMJ Waste in the Inventories tab of the Package Harvest Batch window or on the Inventory Overview.

Part IIII: Transfer MMJ Waste

When you're ready to transfer the MMJ Waste package, hover over the blue tag number and click the clipboard icon to copy the tag number, then go to Orders

> New Order to start your transfer.

From here, you can create your Waste Transfer to a disposal facility. See How To Create A Sales Order for these steps.

And you're done! Nice job 😊
