At Urban Impact, we believe it’s all about giving back to those in our communities that need support to better their lives. Each year, we provide free recycling services as an in-kind contribution to a variety of Metro Vancouver charities and we continuously give back to our community by supporting a wide variety of community events. In 2012, we were very pleased that Urban Impact provided $100,000 in free recycling services to charities in Metro Vancouver.
We are happy to offer School Tours from November 19 to 30!
We believe that here is a huge opportunity to introduce our children to good conservation and recycling habits early! At Urban Impact, we believe that fostering green habits with Grade 4/5 students today puts them on a path towards a lifetime environmental sustainability.
In British Columbia, Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) for Printed Paper & Packaging (PPP) is driven by the producer’s obligation to achieve 75% diversion of the PPP that they sell into the Province.

I have tried to translate what this obligation really means:
Translation …obligation means that the producer will pay for 100% of the costs associated with recycling PPP in BC.
