To all Residential Recyclers - Do you have questions about where your recycling ends up?

September 30, 2019 - This past weekend, CBC Marketplace aired a story exposing challenges related to plastics recycling in British Columbia. The Regional District of Mount Waddington has heard from concerned residents and would like to address (and celebrate) the outcome of the Marketplace investigation. The RDMW delivers all Printed Paper and Packaging collected from residences (curbside and depots) to Recycle BC who then sends 99% of the plastic it collects to Merlin Plastics in Canada, and as confirmed by CBC Marketplace, Merlin Plastics recycles the materials appropriately. Please click this link to read the response from the RDMW Manager of Operations and Recycle BC's response to the Marketplace story and to read about the 1% of densified polystyrene that is shipped to Malaysia and how it is responsibly used. While North Island communities have achieved an enviable low contamination rate (less than 3%) there is room for improvement and the attached document addresses how residents can help reduce the contamination even more.
