- Data, issues and solutions for waste management in Quebec

The sorting centers for curbside recycling sorted nearly one million tons of recyclable materials in 2015. Preliminary data for 2018 suggests the tonnage these centers receive is on the rise due to the strength of the construction and renovation industry observed in recent years. Data will also be available on the current markets for sorted materials and the issues involved.The presentation will also include a review of the financial assistance program for CRD waste sorting centers. The program was set up to ensure the sustainability of the recovery and reclamation chain, issue calls for proposals for pilot projects, conduct demonstrations on CRD waste, financially support projects that aim to solve problems in the CRD sector, and help market residual materials from the sector.
