– Glass and Discharge of Sorting Center Conveyors : Generated, Processes and Reused in Gaspésie


Since 2017, the glass received and the rejects of conveyors generated at the RITMRG sorting center in Grande-Rivière, Gaspésie, have been processed locally and reused locally. These materials generated significant expenses and nearly 300 tons of waste landfilled prior to the implementation of the glass transformation and waste treatment project.

We are now cutting the spendings by over 80%, turning glass into a final granulate, selling it locally and reducing landfill by over 90% … a multi-benefit project. As a bonus, the glass is valued in various forms including landscaping, municipal infrastructures and artistic achievements.
