Provincial Initiatives and Product Stewardship
Product Stewardship or Extended Producer Responsibility is the concept that those who produce, sell or use a product should take responsibility for the economic, environmental and health impacts of that product. This responsibility extends throughout the entire life cycle of the product.
A number of products are regulated for recycling in British Columbia, with local free recycling options.
