Welcome to the Recycling Council of British Columbia!

The Recycling Council of British Columbia is a multi-sectoral, non-profit, membership driven organization that facilitates the exchange of ideas and knowledge that enable efficient solutions to eliminate waste. Established in 1974, we are Canada’s longest-serving recycling council. We have led B.C.’s progressive policy of Extended Producer Responsibility programs and other initiatives to find innovative ways to eliminate waste and decrease British Columbia's environmental footprint.
