A recent editorial by the Centre for Civic Governance points out the success of recycling initiatives in British Columbia, and the leadership role
There's so much to love about this spectacular province. And so much that needs protecting. Luckily, there are many businesses that understand the importance of recycling and the responsibility they have to helping build a greener BC.
Is your favourite company one of them?
MMBC is a not-for-profit organization formed to develop and implement a residential stewardship plan for packaging and printed paper
Businesses that sell packaged goods or supply printed paper to British Columbia residents are classed as stewards under the BC Recycling Regulation, making them legally and financially responsible for the costs of recycling the packaging and printed paper supplied to residents in BC
Local governments, companies and organizations that collect residential packaging and printed paper or prepare it for shipment to end-markets are service providers and can contract with MMBC to provide services
Residents play a central role in the success of BC’s packaging and printed paper recovery program by separating recyclable materials for collection or delivery to recycling depots

CSSA First Annual National Stewards Meeting
CSSA and our family of recycling organizations, including MMBC, held its first annual national meeting for stewards of packaging and printed paper programs in British Columbia, Manitoba and Ontario on October 31, 2013.
British Columbia is transitioning responsibility for end-of-life management of packaging and printed paper (PPP) from governments and their taxpayers to industry and their consumers. As part of this approach, stewards (companies and organizations that supply PPP to residential consumers) were required, under the BC Recycling Regulation, to have or be part of an approved stewardship plan to recover PPP.
As a result, those affected by this regulation are companies and organizations that are stewards as well as local governments, companies and organizations that collect PPP or prepare it for shipment to end-markets.
