It is important to clarify an aspect of your article, Queen Charlotte businesses lash out at recycling fee, from Oct. 22, 2014.

Per the provincial Recycling Regulation, Multi-Material BC (MMBC) manages residential packaging and printed paper recycling on behalf of the businesses that produce and sell these materials to B.C. residents.

Recycling generated by businesses is not covered by the regulation, which is why materials collected from businesses are kept separate at the depot from materials collected from residents.
