EMTERRA Environmental USA
During this pandemic, we understand that many households, being told to stay home, are doing some spring cleaning. We have noticed a huge increase in curbside waste. This increase is causing our employees to work longer hours to ensure everything is picked up in a timely manner.
Many haulers have cut services and are no longer taking compost or recycling. Emterra Environmental USA has not done this yet and will attempt to continue to keep all services intact, but we need your help to do so.
Our first priority at this time is the health and well-being of our essential employees. In order to keep them safe and healthy we are requesting that large spring clean ups (basements, pole barns, etc.) are not put curbside until the pandemic is under control.
Please put out your normal weekly trash (in bags and not exceeding 50 lbs.) and recycling only. Hold off on large items (bulk items) and additional waste until a later date. If we continue to see an increase we will be forced to do as other haulers and halt services for the time being. We do not want to do this, but we need your help.
While our prayers are with any person or family that has tested positive for Covid -19, we need those households to not put their household trash to the curb. Those households need to keep their waste within their own home, so that more people do not get infected.
We thank you for your understanding.
Stay Safe. Stay Home.
A special message regarding Unemployment Insurance from the Michigan Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity.
The following is a special message from the Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity with information on how to best access the UIA as well as other worker and employer resources during the COVID19 emergency response. Thank you for referring constituents to the below resources.
This unprecedented increase in applications, along with federal and state changes in eligibility and benefits, has generated thousands of constituent inquiries. We appreciate your partnership, patience and support as UIA staff continues to work diligently to resolve outstanding constituent inquiries. Below is information that can be shared to help resolve constituent issues.
We encourage each of you to visit and share the resources available on www.michigan.gov/CoronaVirus. In particular, please see the Employer and Worker resources located under the Resources section that includes UIA resources and more.
UIA Constituent Inquiries
Michigan Web Access Manager (MiWAM)
The MIWAM toolkit for claimants is a resource for constituents for many issues related to MILogin concerns. The toolkit contains sections on Frequently Asked Questions, how to file a claim, changing and resetting passwords, and other items related to MiWAM management.
MILogin is the single sign-on application constituents use to access certain state services including DHHS benefits, Michigan Secretary of State, and their MiWAM (Michigan Web Account Manager) account. Constituents can access MILogin from the Unemployment website at www.michigan.gov/uia.
Below are answers to two frequently asked questions related to MILogin issues:
We have developed several shareable infographics and one-pagers available on Michigan.gov/CoronaVirus under Resources, For Employers and Workers.
Additional resources are being added, so check back often.
We have dedicated additional staff and shifted resources within state government to handle the volume of constituent inquiries. Some of those efforts include:
Resources for Employers
Employers are encouraged to implement the State’s Work Share program that permits employers who may be facing maintain business operations during declines in regular activity instead of laying off workers. The program allows employers to keep their employees working with reduced hours, while employees collect partial unemployment benefits to make up a portion of the lost wages. More information about Work Share is available online at www.michigan.gov/WorkShare.
Visit the Unemployment Insurance Agency website for:
Unpaid Leave vs. Termination
Due to the uncertainty regarding potential congressional action regarding whether furloughed workers will be able to access federal resources, employers are urged to place employees on temporary leave as opposed to termination. View the State’s guidance for employers contemplating potential layoffs.
Capital Resources for Employers
Business Call Centers
The MEDC’s call center stands ready to support businesses with questions about assistance available to small business through existing state programs by calling 888.522.0103. The Michigan Small Business Development Center can also provide resources at https://sbdcmichigan.org/small-business-covid19/.
Small Business Association Loans
The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) approved the governor’s request for a statewide Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) declaration, opening the opportunity to small businesses to access low-interest loans from the SBA.
Michigan small businesses, small agricultural cooperatives, and nonprofits that have suffered substantial economic losses as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak can now apply for low-interest loans as part of $1 billion in funding. The application for disaster loan assistance is available at: disasterloan.sba.gov/ela/.
Paycheck Protection Program
Businesses across Michigan are now able to apply for $349 billion in Paycheck Protection Program forgivable loans through the U.S. Small Business Administration. These forgivable loans will be awarded on a first come, first serve basis with funding caps in place, so it is critical Michigan small businesses to apply early – with the application period for small businesses opening on April 3 and for independent contractors and sole proprietors on April 10. A coalition that includes the state of Michigan, SBAM and the Michigan Association of CPAs has launched http://paycheckprotectionprogrammichigan.com/ to make the process as streamlined and as simple as possible for businesses to apply.
The PPP loans are designed to provide a direct incentive for small businesses – including hospitality and food industry businesses and sole proprietorships, independent contractors and self-employed persons – to keep their workers on the payroll and may be forgiven if all employees are kept on the payroll for eight weeks and the money is used for payroll, rent, mortgage interest, or utilities.
Tax Assistance for Small Businesses
The Michigan Treasury Department is providing small businesses that have experienced disrupted operations due to the COVID-19 additional time to make their sales, use and withholding tax monthly payment. Small businesses scheduled to make these payments on March 20 can postpone filing and payment requirements until April 20. Penalties and interest penalties will be waived for 30 days. Learn more about penalties and interest online or by calling the Treasury Business Tax Call Center at 517-636-6925.
