Many products are being collected at depot locations throughout British Columbia through Provincial Take-Back Programs (referred to also as Product Stewardship or Extended Producer Responsibility EPR). Through these programs, stewardship agencies manage the take-back of products on behalf of manufacturers at the items end of life. They recycle or dispose of these products safely, keeping them out of the garbage.
For more information on Provincial Take-Back Programs, contact the Recycling Council of BC at 1.800.667.4321, or visit www.rcbc.bc.ca.
