A non-profit society working towards waste avoidance
We support waste management solutions offering school environmental programs and presentations; community workshops on composting, vermicomposting and organic gardening; conducting research; facilitating the exchange of ideas and providing recycling information services in the Regional District of Fraser Fort George.
PrinceGeorge Recycle makes it easy for members to find new homes for good items rather than throw them away. In the process, we’ll reduce waste, save precious resources, ease the burden on landfills, and connect with like-minded folks. Sign up today
