– Data, issues and solutions for waste management in Quebec


In 2015, the sorting centers for curbside recycling sorted nearly one million tons of recyclable materials, the sorting centers for CRD materials sorted about 1,8 million tons and 5,1 million tons were eliminated. Where are we at in 2018? Preliminary data for 2018 suggests the tonnage these centers receive is on the rise due to the strength of the economy in general (consumption, construction, renovation). Data will also be available on current markets for sorted materials and a portrait of the issues specific to each material will be discussed.
