British Columbia eMobility Overview

In British Columbia, sporting equipment with electrical or electronic components is regulated under the Recycling Regulation Schedule 3, 2 (1)(g). In 2022, the regulation will be enforced and will require producers of eMobility products to establish a program to ensure such products are recycled responsibly, in their entirety, at the end of their useful life. In accordance with this section of the Regulation, Call2Recycle will collect and recycle eMobility products in their entirety in British Columbia on behalf of corporate stewards.

The Call2Recycle eMobility recycling program will provide a means for consumers to recycle their end-of-life eMobility products in a safe and compliant manner. Starting March 1st, 2022, riders will be able to:

  1. Recycle their eMobility product by requesting an eMobility Direct Pick-Up
  2. Drop-off their eMobility product at a designated collection facility, visible on our site locator

The program is funded by an Environmental Handling Fee applied to the sale of each eMobility product sold into the British Columbia market. Call2Recycle uses the funds to pay for the collection, transportation and recycling of the eMobility product, along with training,  materials to collection sites, and rider communication related to the program.

Accepted eMobility Products

The products accepted for recycling (collectively referred to as eMobility) will be:

  • eBikes (including battery and bike)
  • eScooters (including battery and scooter)
  • eSkateboards (including battery and skateboard)
  • Hoverboards (including battery and hoverboard)

Accessibility

The Call2Recycle program offers an extensive network where end-of-life eMobility products can either be dropped off for recycling at designated collection facilities, including independent bicycle retailers and recycling depots, or directly picked up at a rider’s residence or a drop-off location. 

Joining the Program

There are different scenarios under which Call2Recycle and a company joining the eMobility recycling program may enter into an agreement:

  1. A new member will sign a Member Agreement with Call2Recycle, appointing Call2Recycle as the organization to responsibly handle the end-of-life management of eMobility products on behalf of the company. 
  1. An existing member will sign an amendment to the existing Member Agreement, appointing Call2Recycle as the organization to responsibly handle the end-of-life management of eMobility products on behalf of the company.
