Recycling is important. Did you know that by choosing to recycle and reducing your carbon footprint, you are playing a vital role in reducing the damaging effect to the environment.
The more people choose to recycle, the greater the impact recycling will have.
Recycling helps extend the life and usefulness of something that has already served its initial purpose by reducing it back to its raw materials and then repurposing those materials to produce something that is once again useable. It’s part of the three golden rules of sustainability (Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle)
More items have been added to BC’s recycling system so that more items can be put into our Blue Bin or dropped off at a depot.
We can now put single-use cups, cutlery, bowls, plates, and aluminum foil into the Blue Bin.
