Who is Recycle BC?

Recycle BC ensures packaging and printed paper is collected from households and recycling depots, sorted and recycled responsibly.

We service over 1.7 million households through curbside, multi-family and depot collection and process approximately 186,000 tonnes of recyclable material each year in BC. We directly provide recycling service in 12 areas, and work with local governments, first nations, private companies and non-profits in other service areas.

What can I recycle?

We have a consistent material list around the province, so residents in each area that is part of our program can put the same materials in their recycling bins. Material can be searched online with our search tool or on the go with our mobile app.

Why should I recycle?

Recycling helps keep waste out of our landfills and minimize our impact on the environment. By recycling more, we can be part of the solution. Show us how you recycle for your chance to win Whitecaps FC tickets!
