I am a Recycle BC steward and manufacture plastic food storage bags, plastic wrap, and non-durable plastic food containers for distribution to consumers in British Columbia. Are these products designated under the BC Recycling Regulation?

Yes, as a result of the amendments to the BC Recycling Regulation made in 2020, these materials are designated as packaging like products.  Beginning with your 2022 steward report, based on 2021 sales data, please include these products in your steward report along with the packaging associated with these products.  For more information on the update to the BC Recycling Regulation to include Single-Use Products and Packaging-Like Products, please refer to this Explanatory Note.
