Bin it: Building the circular economy for recyclable materials

Overview of circular economy

Now more than ever, it's time to reinvent Quebec's recycling industry!

We've been hearing about the "recycling crisis" for a few years now. Let's be frank: The many challenges facing the industry call for a transformation of the current system.

It's time for us to take the bull by the horns and create opportunities.

Curbside recycling has reached a turning point and its future looks very promising.

  • 99%

    of households are served by curbside recycling

  • 23

    material recovery facilities (MRFs) in Quebec

  • 95 kg

    of materials recycled per person, per year

Our goal: To provide a new lease on life for 100% of recyclable materials.

The future of recovery and recycling depends on a partnership where all participants in Quebec's system will work together towards reaching ambitious common goals.

A modernized curbside recycling system is synonymous not only with a more economically prosper system for Quebec, but with a greener one, too. To get there, we need to focus on 3 main goals.
