RCBC is Canada's oldest recycling council, and in BC, has earned the reputation of being the most widely respected, multi-sectoral environmental organization operating in the province today. RCBC receives almost 50,000 inquiries a year from residents and businesses across the province wanting pollution prevention and waste management information. In addition, RCBC itself is a primary contact for local media and is typically invited to the table during stakeholder consultation on public policy issues within its scope. In short, RCBC is a dynamic organization that is much in demand and has much to offer its members.

RCBC was founded in 1974 as an umbrella organization for the numerous community-based recycling operations that had emerged throughout the province in the early 1970s. At that time, RCBCís mandate was to advocate for waste reduction and recycling and to coordinate recycling market development, acting as a professional marketing agent for its members. In 1985, RCBC expanded its membership to include recycling industry representatives Ė processors, end-users, equipment suppliers and others involved in the fast-growing business of recycling. Another key initiative of this era was the establishment of the BC Materials Exchange, a service RCBC designed as a way to facilitate the exchange of materials that are hard to reuse or recycle. In 1990, under contract to the provincial government, RCBC opened the province-wide Recycling Hotline to meet the publicís need for accurate information on pollution prevention and waste reduction.

RCBC has played and continues to play a leadership role in the development of BCís cutting-edge industry product stewardship programs. For example, RCBC was involved in the expansion of the beverage container deposit-refund program and the establishment of the post-consumer paint stewardship program. We are active participants on a number of stewardship related committees, such as the Beverage Container Management Board and the Scrap Tire Advisory Committee.

In addition to industry product stewardship, RCBC works on many other policy issues, such as the development of zero waste policy, waste electronic equipment recovery and building deconstruction. Recognizing the broader impacts of solid and hazardous wastes on the environment, RCBC also continues to expand the scope of its policy and information services to address such issues as climate change and corporate social responsibility. In fact, raising awareness about the linkages between waste minimization and greenhouse gas reductions is now one of our top priorities.

RCBC facilitates and administers multi-stakeholder processes as a means of providing information and feedback to government on policy issues. As well, RCBC offers information and research services to public and private sector clients.

RCBC works to create opportunities for people to come together to exchange ideas, network and learn from each other. Our annual Breakfast with the Minister and annual 2 1 /2 day Conference are two examples of how we bring people together on a regular basis.

From our roots in the community-based recycling movement, RCBC has grown and changed in response to developments in solid waste management and the broader field of environmental protection. Today, our membership includes governments, businesses, non-profit organizations and interested individuals from all regions of BC, and beyond. Positioned as a multi-sectoral environmental organization working towards waste avoidance and sustainability, we're proud of who we are, what we've done, and where we're heading.
