What are some examples of EPR?

Currently, British Columbia has twelve stewardship agencies running recycling programs for hundreds of products, such as electronics, fluorescent lights, batteries, paint and tires. As more materials are regulated into EPR programs by the Ministry of Environment, more stewardship agencies will be created.

One of the more popular EPR programs in British Columbia is the beverage container recycling program. This is also the only program with a deposit/refund system.

You can find a complete list of BC's EPR programs on the Stewardship Agencies of British Columbia website.
