Call for Delegates

Call for Delegates: Board of Directors, Beverage Container Management Board

Initiative: 
Board of Directors
Position: 
Public Member
Application Deadline: 
27 Apr 2015

The Beverage Container Management Board (BCMB) is responsible for the collection and recycling of beverage containers throughout Alberta.

The BCMB is a not-for-profit association consisting of representatives of Alberta beverage manufacturers, container depots and the public (environmental organizations, municipalities and interested citizens). The BCMB was established through the Beverage Container Recycling Regulation, which was enacted under the Environmental Protection and Enhancement Act and the organization’s bylaws. Since its inception on December 1, 1997, the BCMB has worked to ensure that Albertans have access to a convenient and cost-effective system for recycling used beverage containers.

The BCMB is a Delegated Administrative Organization (DAO), an arm’s length organization that has delegated government authority under the Ministry of Environment and Sustainable Resource Development to impose requirements on recycling program stakeholders. DAOs are unique – a range of stakeholders are encouraged to participate, including industry, government and the public. These parties are primarily involved in program stewardship through appointments to the Board of Directors.

One Public Member position on the Board of Directors is reserved for a designee of the Alberta Environmental Network. The current AEN-nominated Director’s 3-year term expires this spring. Read more about Call for Delegates: Board of Directors, Beverage Container Management Board
