Welcome to the Recycling Council of British Columbia!

The Recycling Council of British Columbia (RCBC) is Canada’s longest-serving recycling council established in 1974. As a registered charitable organization, our goals is to facilitate the exchange of ideas and knowledge that enable efficient solutions to eliminate waste. Through our Recycling Hotline and Recyclepedia, we provide BC's most comprensive source of information for B.C's 17 Extended Producer Responsibility programs, curbside recycling programs, and other waste reduction and reuse options for products and materials British Columbians encounter every day.  In 2018, we answered over 215,000 questions on recycling, reuse, and general waste reduction information!
