Soft Plastic Collection Events
Recycle BC invites you to host a soft plastic collection event in your community!
Materials that should be collected during the community event are:
- Plastic bags and overwrap
- Other flexible plastic packaging
These two material categories are accepted at depot and London Drugs locations. By expanding the collection opportunities and providing community leaders the ability to facilitate collection events we hope to collect more of this material in our system and keep it out of landfill.
By collecting these materials separately, it allows us to effectively process and recycle more of the material. These two materials are managed differently in the post-collection process so keeping them separate is important.
How can I get involved?
If you’re interested in hosting a collection event, fill out the form below and our team will follow up with a hosting information package. Recycle BC is a residential packaging and paper recycling program with firm guidelines for sorting and collecting material to prevent contamination. These guidelines ensure that collected material is effectively processed in the recycling system and diverted from landfill. Find more information about the recycling process here.

Recycle BC requires that all material collected at a Recycle BC supported event be delivered to a designated Recycle BC depot.
