Events: upcoming conferences and webinars

On Oct. 6-7, 2022, the NWPSC visited facilities that are part of EPR programs in British Columbia and met with elected officials and staff from Metro Vancouver and some of their cities. We saw how mixed plastics were sorted and processed at Merlin Plastics – a vital part of Recycle BC's Packaging and Paper Products EPR program. Their recycling rate is over 80%. Recycle BC ensures that residential recycling services are provided to 99% of households across British Columbia and covers all costs for running the recycling system in the province: collection, sorting, processing, and marketing of recycled materials.
