The luxurious Fairmont Chateau Whistler hotel set in the Canadian Rocky Mountains was the backdrop for the Recycling Council of British Columbia’s (RCBC) annual general meeting and conference last month. The event also included RCBC’s annual award ceremony.
The event is a great opportunity to catch up with like-minded environmentalists in both public and private sectors. The RCBC has always had the goal to spearhead extended producer responsibility (EPR) for all relevant industries operating in British Columbia (BC) since 1974. The event evolved to become a mixture of proposed sustainability strategies along with the best innovations that might become part of RCBC work in the future.
Call2Recycle sponsored an educational session, devoted to resolving the tough sustainability scenarios faced by municipalities in BC. The rest of the sessions highlighted sustainability best practices, case studies, and proposals for: global EPR schemes; stewardship; youth investment; technology; waste management; and how best to clean up Earth after the oil industry.Share
