JULY 12, 2017
THIS IS THE BEGINNING OF THE REPORTING PERIOD FOR THE
2017 SCHEDULE OF CONTRIBUTIONS!


The 2017 Schedule of Contributions was published in the Gazette officielle du Québec, today July 12th, marking the start of the 90-day reporting period, which will run until October 10, 2017. We invite all companies and organizations to fill out their Company Reports on the ECO-D system and to consult related documentation, including the summary sheet on the Schedule.

Before beginning the reporting process, remember that:

  • Contribution for the 2017 Schedule of Contributions is payable in two instalments* (only one instalment for flat fees). Please take note of the payment deadlines indicated in the table below in order to plan your instalments and liquidity management.

*These payments apply to companies who report over 15 tonnes or did not opt for the flat fee even though they were eligible.
**According to the Schedule publication date.


Preliminary reporting
For companies who have already entered their data in the ECO-D reporting portal on a preliminary basis, please note that the data have been automatically copied to your official Company Report. You should now validate the information for each page and officially submit your Company Report for your contribution invoice to be issued and thus fulfill your legal obligations.


Training webinars on reporting best practices
To better guide you in your reporting process, ÉEQ has posted training capsules available on our website for the persons responsible for this process. Documentation according to business sector is also available. We hope that these tools will help you better understand your obligations under the compensation plan, the reporting process and allowable deductions, and that the tips and advice will make the process easier for you. A materials guide has also been updated in order to reflect changes since the 2017 Schedule of Contributions.
   
ÉEQ is on social media!
Follow us to learn about the latest packaging optimization ideas, news from our partners and the many initiatives ÉEQ develops to benefit curbside recycling.
  
Éco Entreprises Québec (ÉEQ) is the organization that develops the Schedule of Contributions and collects company contributions, which are then redistributed to finance municipal curbside recycling services in Quebec. ÉEQ also encourages innovation and sharing of best practices in order to optimize the recyclable materials value chain. To do so, ÉEQ cooperates, on the one hand, with companies to reduce quantities of materials at the source and encourage the use of recyclable materials, as well as with municipalities to increase recycling and the economic value of recovered materials.

ÉEQ is a private non-profit organization created by companies that put containers, packaging and printed matter on Quebec’s market to represent them. The organization was accredited by RECYC-QUÉBEC in 2005 in accordance with the Environment Quality Act.
