What Makes a Sustainable Community?

Future generations deserve to enjoy the beauty and natural wonder that Victoria and British Columbia have to offer. That is just one reason why Ellice Recycle is committed to a sustainable community. A sustainable community not only supports itself through responsible resource management and initiatives, it can spread its influence further to improve its province, nation, and even the world!

According to the common understanding of what makes a sustainable community (via the Institute for Sustainable Communities), “A sustainable community is one that is economically, environmentally, and socially healthy and resilient. It meets challenges through integrated solutions rather than through fragmented approaches that meet one of those goals at the expense of the others. And it takes a long-term perspective—one that’s focused on both the present and future, well beyond the next budget or election cycle.”

Ellice is consistently involved with the local community through events, local festivities and more. Throughout the year, we regularly provide recycling expertise more ideas to improve the environmental friendliness of our community recycling initiatives.

We join with the city of Victoria’s greater vision for a sustainable community: “inspiring innovation, pride and progress towards greater ecological integrity, livability, economic vitality, and community resiliency confronting the changes facing society and the planet today and for generations to come.”

The Ralmax Group of companies – including Ellice Recycle – make daily efforts in our facilities, operations, and planning to support the vision for a sustainable community in Victoria, British Columbia, and the world. We are very proud of our positive contributions through community recycling initiatives. In addition to our recycling efforts, we join the community in Victoria to improve social well being and live-ability, sustain and renew the natural environment through environmental integrity initiatives, and do our part to support economic vitality.

As part of our efforts to support Victoria’s economic vitality, Ellice Recycle has always made it a priority to provide our employees with work in a central, downtown location. This allows close proximity to many of their homes, and requires that Ellice Recycle also maintains our facilities so that we are good neighbours!

If you have a community event that you would like us to be a part of, please contact us! We would love to see how we can be involved.
