The Recycling Council of British Columbia (RCBC) is Canada’s longest-serving recycling council established in 1974. As a registered charitable organization, our goal 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 comprehensive source of information for the province's 17 Extended Producer Responsibility programs, curbside recycling systems, and other waste reduction/reuse options for products and materials British Columbians encounter every day. In 2019, we answered over 225,000 questions on recycling, reuse, and general waste reduction information!
