In accordance with direction from the British Columbia Ministry of Environment & Climate Change Strategy (MOECC), starting January 1, 2020, all Recycle BC service providers are required to report on greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions associated with their operational activities. The GHG report will represent service providers’ activities from January 1 to December 31. Every service provider must access the WeRecycle Portal to enter the data associated with their GHG report. All annual data must be submitted by January 31 of the following year.
Since measuring GHG emissions can sometimes be challenging, service providers will report on readily available measures such as electricity use, fuel use, facility square footage, etc. Recycle BC will compile this information and use it to calculate Recycle BC’s total GHG emissions.
This guide provides direction on how to use the WeRecycle Portal (“the Portal”) to report GHG emissions. For more assistance calculating your quantities to report, please refer to other available resources for Recycle BC.
The Portal can be accessed from Windows or Macintosh PC operating systems and supports the latest version of all common browsers, including:
- Google Chrome
- Apple Safari
- Microsoft Edge
- Internet Explorer 9, 10, 11
- Please note that for Internet Explorer, “Accessibility” settings must be turned “OFF” for full functionality.
