Recycling in British Columbia is changing and Emterra is glad to be a part of it! BC has introduced regulation that shifts responsibility for recycling printed paper and packaging materials away from residents and municipalities to the companies that introduce these materials to residents. By shifting the burden (and cost), producers are encouraged to reduce packaging and paper waste which contributes to greater environmental sustainability.
The new recycling program is industry sponsored and run by Multi-Material BC (MMBC) and applies to multi-family buildings and Stratas province-wide!

Emterra Makes Recycling Easier so Residents Recycle More
Our vision is to achieve a “zero-waste” environment. By reducing packaging and paper waste plus recycling a greater portion of what is produced, we are on our way. Emterra pioneered Single Stream Recycling, which means all your recyclables go into one bin and no more sorting.
