Why proper sorting and recovery is key
It all starts with your blue bin
Placing the correct recyclable materials in your bin is the first step in the recovery process. By the end of their journey, these same materials become new products.
Being mindful of what we send to the sorting centre has a direct impact on the entire recycling system. It help ensure the safety of employees and the efficiency of operations. For the system to function properly, all of Quebec must do its part.
Being mindful of what we put in our blue bins helps improve the system so that more containers, packaging and printed papers can be recycled efficiently. That means more valuable, high-quality recycled products and less wasted resources. A curbside recycling system that runs smoothly allows us to discover and develop new markets.
