In 2011, the BC Government amended the BC Recycling Regulation to make Producers of Packaging and Printed Paper (PPP) responsible for its collection and processing, instead of taxpayers. Multi-Material BC (MMBC) is a non-profit organization that was formed to represent producers of PPP. As mandated by the BC Government, MMBC has designated a new Provincial Recycling Program that was implemented May 19, 2014, across BC. This new recycling program affects residential recycling only, not businesses or institutions. As of May 19, 2014, residents are able to recycle more materials in their apartment, condo and townhome recycling program, can drop off plastic films such as grocery bags, produce bags, overwrap from paper towel packaging, and styrofoam packaging to the City's Eco-Centre.
