Doing our part to reduce waste. Become a Waste Less Champion!


The Recycling and Environmental Action Planning Society
REAPS was established with the mandate of fostering environmental stewardship in the Regional District of Fraser-Fort George. For over 30 years, we have raised community awareness on the importance of the seven Rs – reduce, reuse, recycle, rethink, refuse, repair, regift – and the resources available locally to help guide residents in adopting a more sustainable lifestyle.

Programs for Teachers

We offer free school programs for classrooms around the region.
Tailored, grade-appropriate content introduces students to concepts of waste reduction, sustainability, and our impact on the planet. Teachers can choose from a variety of programs to support their curriculum across the school year.  Some topics feature out-of-classroom, experiential learning in the community.
