2017 Community Events Team tour schedule

Back and better than ever, Recycle BC’s community events team is back in action and visiting communities around BC. Featuring fun games and educational activities, including a virtual reality experience, ultimate recycler sorting challenge and recycling museum, this display has an activity for everyone.

Activities

Two different teams will visit several communities, each offering unique and exciting activities:

  • Recycling Journey: A Virtual Reality Experience – See recycling through a lens you have never seen before with our new virtual reality experience. Follow a mustard bottle through its 360° recycling journey!
  • Recycling Journey: Museum – Ever wondered what your recycle looks like before it is made into a new product? Recycle BC will showcase various stages of the recycling process so you can see how your recycled materials get a second life.
  • Ultimate Sorter Challenge – Test your recycling knowledge and sort recyclables into the correct categories!  It may seem easy, but even the experts have to think twice!
  • Kick Recyclables to the Curb – Do you love spot-kicks? Try your aim and shoot a soccer ball into one of the Recycle BC recycling bins.
