Recycle BC provides incentives to local governments, First Nations, private companies and non-profits to continue collecting packaging and printed paper under contract with Recycle BC.

Local governments providing residential packaging and printed paper or garbage curbside collection in November 2012 were initially offered a collection incentive to provide collection in May 2014. Recycle BC also offered a collection incentive to local governments and qualified private companies and non-profit organizations to provide collection of packaging and printed paper from multi-family buildings and to operate depots.

Recycle BC’s collection system consists of collectors that executed agreements with Recycle BC by November 30, 2013, and respondents that were selected through a Request for Proposals.

Recycle BC’s Packaging and Printed Paper Stewardship Plan (Stewardship Plan) aims to create greater access to residential packaging and printed paper recycling throughout BC. Recycle BC continues to look for opportunities to expand its collection network to better service BC residents.
