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 multi-sectoral, non-profit, membership driven organization, we 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 2017, we answered over 227,000 questions on recycling, reuse, and general waste reduction information!  

Support our services such as the Recylepedia and Recycling Hotline and help our province towards "a world without waste".
