Reclaim Plastics exists to help businesses become sustainability leaders in their field with our customized recycling solutions.
We divert waste from landfills by turning plastic waste generated by businesses (i.e. post-industrial plastics) into new products in a sustainable and environmentally conscious manner. We’re always looking to tackle new recycling challenges.
As an industrial plastics recycling facility, we offer convenient, reliable, and affordable pick-up services spanning across B.C.
We not only process your material, but also work with our partners to create entirely new products with the recycled input – such as plastic piping, landscape edging, commercial containers, or even new car parts. We believe finding circular solutions will lead to a more sustainable planet.

Auto parts and bodies have been classified under Banned Hazardous and Operational Impact Materials under Metro Vancouver’s Tipping Fee Bylaw and Disposal Ban Program for a number of years. These bans are enforced and Metro Vancouver and City of Vancouver disposal facilities.
We’re proud that our city has taken the next step in banning automotive plastics from landfills, allowing these plastics to be recycled back into the community. We are always looking to partner with businesses, organizations, and municipalities across the province to ensure a more sustainable B.C.
