Big Brothers and Regional Recycling Announce New Partnership

LOWER MAINLAND, BC – On April 1, Big Brothers of Greater Vancouver (BBGV) and Regional Recycling announced a new partnership to support youth mentorship through responsible recycling.

For the month of April, Regional Recycling will donate 100% of revenue from bottles donated at all of their Lower Mainland recycling facilities to the not-for-profit organization.

Residents can donate at recycling centres located in Vancouver, Richmond, Burnaby, Surrey and Abbotsford or book a free bottle pickup online through the Depozip.ca.

“Supporting Big Brothers of Greater Vancouver was an easy decision to make. Both our organizations align in supporting our communities for a better future through caring for our environment and our youth,” Rod Lotzkar, Regional Recycling founder, said.

Regional Recycling provides modern recycling services for plastics, metals, electronics, household items, and more, with facilities across Greater Vancouver, the Fraser Valley, Sea to Sky and Nanaimo regions. They select local non-profits to support through their Charity of the Month initiative.

“We’re thrilled to have such a reputable and sustainable partnership. It’s a perfect match that parallels our clothing donation program to fundraise for our programs,” Slav Gudelj, general manager of BBGV’s Renew Crew Foundation, said.

The Renew Crew Foundation’s mission is to raise funds for BBGV’s free youth mentoring programs by collecting donated clothing and household goods. They are guided by their values to reduce, reuse and recycle in order to preserve our environment for the future of local children.

The public can book a free pickup online to donate clothing or household items. You can also choose host a donation bin at a residence or workplace, or donate at BBGV donation bins located throughout the Fraser Valley.

More than 750 children and youth benefit from the volunteer-led BBGV mentorship programs each year throughout Greater Vancouver supported by donations like these.
