Curbside Recycling Ambassadors Program
Teens involved in the curbside recycling effort!
In May 2014, the Away-from-Home Recovery Program, the bacs+ group and the Regroupement des maisons de jeunes du Québec (RMJQ) established a historic partnership to launch the Curbside Recycling Ambassadors Program.
A financial assistance program to mobilize our youth
The Ambassadors program, funded with a $700,000 investment, supports projects that enhance curbside recycling and promote its social benefits via the mobilization of young people involved in the 187 youth centres throughout the province. The youth centres are invited to develop a project and apply for financial assistance of up to $4,000 for project implementation.
Projects to promote away-from-home materials recovery
The youth centres may choose from two types of projects according to the needs in their area:
Making Quebec’s public place materials recovery network the best and broadest in North America
In addition to making more recovery equipment available in municipal public places such as parks, along streets, in sports centres and libraries, this initiative will also improve the effectiveness, both in quantity and quality, of recyclable materials recovery throughout Quebec.
