The Developmental Disabilities Association was presented with the Recycling Council of British Columbia’s 2009 MOBI Award for excellence in environmental stewardship in BC.

At the Developmental Disabilities Association, we strive to effect positive change in our society not only by offering and supporting developmental services, but also by reducing our ecological footprint. We are committed to environmental sustainability through the implementation and usage of different recycling programs and audits. Through recycling, we help our environment by diverting useful material from landfills, saving energy, and reducing the amount of CO2 released into our atmosphere.
