Founded in 1974, RCBC is Canada's longest serving recycling council, but it is about more than just recycling. RCBC works to prevent and reduce the use of resources before they ever need to be recycled. However, when B.C. residents have end-of-life materials, RCBC’s primary role is to provide them with information about the options available in their communities, through the Recycling Hotline, B.C. Recyclepedia and Phone App.
As part or our mission, RCBC facilitates the exchange of ideas and knowledge that enable efficient solutions to eliminate waste through its public information services, through its annual conference, and through special events such as Waste Reduction Week.
