CleanBC organics infrastructure and collection program
The CleanBC Organics Infrastructure and Collection Program is now closed to applications. We are pleased to announce 23 projects under this program.
The CleanBC Organics Infrastructure and Collection Program (OICP) keeps organic waste out of landfills and reduces greenhouse gas emissions.
OICP funding supports the total investment of $38.85 million towards building new, and expanding existing, organic waste-processing facilities and residential household collection programs.
The Government of British Columbia contributed $25.9 million to fund up to 66 percent of eligible project costs of the successful projects.
Funding recipients will contribute the remaining $12.95 million in project costs.
