Through continual efforts, we now estimate that our Vancouver facility diverts approximately 90 per cent of its waste from landfill through recycling and composting. Despite a lack of local composting infrastructure in Kamloops, we established a permanent composting program with the help of a local green entrepreneur.
We also divert electrical and electronic equipment (e–waste) from landfill though recovering, re–selling and recycling ‘end–of–life’ casino and lottery equipment. To comply with BC’s Provincial Recycling Regulation BCLC is a steward of the Electronic Products Recycling Association of BC.
In regards to paper products we produce, we are a member of MultiMaterial BC’s product stewardship program and report on the production and disposal of our paper products.
