What is Recycle BC?
Recycle BC (formerly MMBC) is a non-profit organization working on behalf of businesses that supply packaging and printed paper to BC residents. Recycle BC is now responsible for residential recycling programs in many areas across BC, either directly or by working with local governments, First Nations, private companies and not-for profit organizations.
Recycle BC provides incentive funding to the city which offsets the cost of residential recycling services in Courtenay. This includes residential blue boxes and the multi-family Toter program.
