Compostable Packaging Study - Recycle BC

Recycle BC is working to determine how much paper and packaging enters into the residential source-separated organics collection system. Research began in 2018 by conducting audits from curbside and multi-family residential source-separated organics systems, and continued in 2019 by investigating forms of compostable packaging that are becoming present in organics recycling streams and their end-of-life management.

Below are links to the summary reports of Recycle BC’s 2018 and 2019 project work:
