Studies on curbside recycling

Recovery Rates – Businesses

According to RECYC-QUÉBEC’s Bilan 2010, the proportion of businesses and institutions served by municipal curbside recycling has reached 9.3%. ÉEQ therefore believes that it is important to determine the quantity and composition of materials recovered from those establishments.

ÉEQ therefore participated in a characterization study of residual materials generated by the commercial sub-sector in 2008-2009. As part of that study, more than 1,000 businesses and institutions in the Greater Montréal area agreed to have their materials sorted and analyzed. A survey of businesses and institutions was carried out to determine what percentage were served by municipal curbside recycling programs.
