Reaps working towards waste avoidance

REAPS is celebrating 27 years of 3Rs in the Regional District of Fraser-Fort George by assisting residents, businesses and institutions in reducing their waste and making greener choices. The Recycling and Environmental Action Planning Society (REAPS) was established in October of 1989 with the mandate of fostering environmental stewardship in Prince George, British Columbia, Canada.

Our main focus is on waste reduction through waste avoidance. We accomplish this through outreach and education. [more...]
