About

We are a collection of Manitoba-based stewardship organizations with a common goal: to help consumers divert as much waste as possible from our landfills.

Why does this matter?

Quite simply, recycling protects our natural resources, saves landfill space, conserves energy, and reduces water and air pollution as well as the green house gas emissions that cause global warming.

For these reasons and more, we have come together to make it easy for consumers to find safe and responsible ways to dispose of products and packaging that is no longer useful.
