Developed by The Recycling Council of British Columbia (RCBC), in partnership with the Society Promoting Environmental Conservation (SPEC), the free app is a quick and simple tool that helps users find over 1,000 drop-off locations and recycling options for over 70 materials or products across BC.

Download the latest version of BC Recyclepedia App which now includes 37 new materials such as furniture, organic materials, building materials, textiles, and new products covered under stewardship program expansions for electronics, small appliances, electrical equipment, and lighting products.

The App, available for both iPhones & Androids, provides users a list of the 10 nearest locations to recycle your item, based on the phones location, as well as a Google map with directions. Both App’s provide the option to call the RCBC Recycling Hotline for additional questions.
