Business coalition rails against tyrannical BC recycling changes

A coalition of business groups has banded together to fight pending changes to recycling regulations, saying the regime – to take effect in May – will result in hidden costs for consumers, push recycling contractors out of business and threaten an already beleaguered newspaper industry.

Under the program, producers that sign up with MMBC will pay a volume-based fee to cover the costs of collecting and processing material.

Agricultural operators, small business owners and recycling depots will also face higher costs and an increased regulatory burden as a result of the program, industry representatives said.
