Blue Planet Recycling has a track record of success in helping businesses and industries in Vancouver develop seamless, efficient and cost-saving recycling solutions while reducing waste and disposal costs.

Nestled between the Pacific Ocean and North America’s Coast Mountain Range, Vancouver is a busy cosmopolitan city perched on nature’s edge.

Vancouver is not only world renowned for its beauty and nearby natural tourist attractions, but also its historic reputation for recycling and “green” awareness.

The city enjoys widespread support among its citizens for many environmentally-oriented organizations and municipal plans and policies.

Vancouver’s claims to green fame include the following:

  • Location of beautiful Stanley Park, one of the world’s largest urban parks, opened in 1888 and dedicated by Lord Stanley to “the use and enjoyment of peoples of all colours, creeds, and customs, for all time”
  • Home to renowned environmentalist David Suzuki and the Suzuki Foundation
  • Home port of the first mission undertaken by Greenpeace to “bear witness” to nuclear testing at Amchitka island in 1971
  • City council’s stated intention to become the greenest city in the world: Greenest City 2020 Action Plan
  • Ongoing implementation of Bike Lanes throughout the downtown area
  • Named Canada’s Greenest City in 2011 by the Economist Intelligence Unit
  • Headquarters of the Recycling Council of BC

The Recycling Council of British Columbia (RCBC) is Canada’s longest-serving recycling council. Since 1974 RCBC has been leading the way with progressive policies and other initiatives to find innovative ways to eliminate waste and decrease British Columbia’s environmental footprint. Along the way these and other efforts have created awareness and a robust industry for plastic recycling in Vancouver.

Plastic Recycling in Edmonton

Call 1-866-421-5060 for scrap plastic recycling in Edmonton

Blue Planet Recycling has a track record of success in helping businesses and industries in Edmonton develop seamless, efficient and cost-saving recycling solutions while reducing waste and disposal costs.

Edmonton’s reputation as a “City of Champions” may have been earned by the Oilers, but Edmonton can truly claim to be a recycling champion.  Edmonton is a proud global leader in waste reduction with one of the most comprehensive and convenient recycling systems anywhere.

The city’s well deserved economic success as a regional commercial hub for the energy industries has allowed it to develop many industries that benefit from large scale recycling initiatives, especially in partnership with programs Blue Planet Recycling offers for scrap plastic recycling in Edmonton.

When it comes to taking out the trash, Edmonton really is the City of Champions.

As the city celebrates 25 years of curbside recycling, it continues to push initiatives that are leaving other Canadian cities in the dust. 93 per cent of single-family households recycle voluntarily. While it seems odd for the capital of conservative hotbed Alberta to be a recycling leader, it all began as a matter of circumstance.

The City of Edmonton’s public landfill opened in 1975 with a capacity for 13.2 million tonnes of trash, and by the mid-’80s, officials were worried it was filling too fast. Instead of creating another landfill — an unpopular idea with residents — the city decided to start diverting as much waste as possible.

Today Edmonton diverts roughly 55 per cent of waste from landfill through recycling. Recycled waste is sorted by workers and machines in the Materials Recovery Facility — dubbed “merf” — that is part of the Edmonton Waste Management Centre, a 233-hectare site built in 1999 in the city’s northeast corner. The WMC is North America’s largest collection of modern, sustainable waste processing and research facilities.

Edmonton was also one of the first Canadian cities to build a composting facility in 2000, which is located at the WMC, and comprehensive eco stations located throughout the city let people can drop off electronics and hazardous waste. The Blue Bin program, implemented in 2002, offers on-site recycling at apartments and condos.

Critics argue the benefits of recycling are outweighed by the costs, though the process is continually becoming more efficient as new technologies are introduced.

Organizations such as The Recycling Council of Alberta (RCA), a not-for-profit, non-political organization formed in 1987 lead the way in both initiative and creating awareness for plastics recycling in Edmonton.
