Paper Use GHG Reporting (Recycle BC)

Paper Use for Recycling-Related Promotion and Education Materials 

To complete this section of the GHG report, you will need to know how much paper by weight has been purchased for printed recycling brochures, pamphlets, etc.

The paper type (e.g. card stock, multi-purpose paper, copy paper, printer paper) must be known as well as the percentage of recycled content (e.g. 100 boxes of 20lb box of 8.5 x 11” recycled multi-purpose paper; 100% recycled content).

If your recycling guides/brochures also include information related to organics or garbage collection, please multiply the total weight of the guides/brochures by the proportion of the total number of pages of the guide allocated to recycling of paper and packaging.

Below is a guide to help you determine the type of paper you are using to produce your printed recycling promotion and education materials:
