10 Years of Recycling

        Keeping New Brunswick Clean and Green for generations to come.

Our roots

The Designated Materials Regulation (New Brunswick Regulation 2008-54) under the Clean Environment Act came into effect on May 1, 2008. The Regulation created Recycle NB and transferred the rights and obligations of the existing New Brunswick Tire Stewardship Board to the new corporate body.

Our vision is to MOVE BEYOND WASTE and make our province waste-free.


Recycle NB manages New Brunswick’s designated materials programs through partnerships with industry, governments, local authorities and the community.  The paint, electronics and oil and glycol programs are EPR (Extended Producer Responsibility) programs, which means the producers of the products operate and fund the programs.
