THE AMENDMENT TO THE REGULATION HAS BEEN ADOPTED
THE 2013 SCHEDULE OF CONTRIBUTIONS SHOULD COME INTO EFFECT IN EARLY 2014
The Regulation amending the Regulation on the compensation of municipal curbside recycling services has been adopted and published in a special edition of the Gazette officielle du Québec on Friday, December 13. ÉEQ will carry out an in-depth analysis of the impact of the new Regulation and will submit a complete report after the Holidays.
We expect ÉEQ’s 2013 Schedule of Contributions to come into effect in early 2014, following which companies will have 90 days to submit their Company Report. Contrary to the initial payment schedule issued earlier this year, no contributions will be due in January 2014.

ÉEQ TAKES A BREAK FOR THE HOLIDAYS
Please note that our offices will close for the Holiday period, i.e. from December 24, 2013, at noon to January 3, 2014, inclusively. Companies and organizations who wish to update their file and submit their Company Reports for previous years or make a payment during that period may do so according to the usual conditions.
WE WOULD LIKE TO TAKE THIS OPPORTUNITY TO EXPRESS OUR APPRECIATION TO THE 3,000 COMPANIES AND ORGANIZATIONS FOR THEIR COMMITMENT TO DEVELOPPING AN EFFECTIVE CURBSIDE RECYCLING SYSTEM FOR QUEBEC. HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
ON TAP FOR 2014
CONSULTATION PROCESS FOR THE 2014 SCHEDULE OF CONTRIBUTIONS
The consultation process for the 2014 Schedule of Contributions is planned to start in the winter of 2014. Considering the delays in adopting the draft regulation and publication of the 2013 Schedule of Contributions, companies and organizations can expect application rules for the 2014 Schedule of Contributions to be similar to those for the 2013 Schedule. However, ÉEQ intends to present various scenarios to extend eligibility criteria for flat fees in order to lighten the administrative burden for low-volume producers. This initiative follows up on commitments taken during the preceding consultation.
Specific dates will be announced soon.
