Recycle everywhere

Today, we recycle everywhere


Recycling is not just for home. For Quebecers, that’s important. People can now recycle materials in many public places, no matter whether they are picnicking in the park,

enjoying a fun-filled day of shopping along a commercial street, waiting for the bus, browsing at the library or attending an exciting game at the arena or the recreation centre.

Even so,
three people out of four
would like to have more installations to recycle materials when they are away from home.

When recycling bins are available in public places, 83 % of Quebecers are happy to use them. We’re sure you are among them.


Although Quebec is a leader when it comes to recycling, a recent survey showed that residents in the Outaouais and Bas-Saint-Laurent regions are away-from-home recycling champions!


Top 5 items placed in bins

Although all containers, packaging and printed matter are recyclable, people use recycling bins in public places to dispose of mainly:

  1. Water bottles
  2. Newspapers and other printed matter
  3. Milk or juice containers
  4. Coffee cups
  5. Fast food containers

3,000 companies
