"A World Without Waste"
The Recycling Council of British Columbia (RCBC) facilitates the exchange of ideas and knowledge that enable efficient solutions to eliminate waste.
Founded in 1974, RCBC is Canada's longest serving recycling council, but it is about more than just recycling. RCBC works to prevent and reduce the use of resources before they ever need to be recycled. However, when B.C. residents have end-of-life materials, RCBC’s primary role is to provide them with information about the options available in their communities, through the Recycling Hotline, B.C. Recyclepedia and Phone App.
As part or our mission, RCBC facilitates the exchange of ideas and knowledge that enable efficient solutions to eliminate waste through its public information services, through its annual conference, and through special events such as Waste Reduction Week.
Each year, RCBC's Information Services staff answer more than 180,000 questions from callers or web visits about pollution prevention, recycling and waste reduction.
The RCBC Materials Exchange (MEX), promotes reuse through a network of free-to-use web sites, such as Surreyreuses.com, that offer items and list events, such as garage sales.
RCBC members are local, regional and provincial governments, businesses large and small, non-profit organizations and interested individuals who recognize the importance of coming together to work on B.C.'s long-term sustainability and create a world without waste.
