Collaboration Agreement with Éco Entreprises Québec

Category: Other
Time frame: Since 2014
Location: Quebec
Status: Active

In June 2014, Éco Entreprises Québec (ÉEQ), the stewardship organization responsible for packaging and printed paper in Quebec, and the Carton Council of Canada (CCC) signed a collaborative agreement aiming to increase the volume of carton packaging being collected and improve recycling rates for shelf-stable cartons (juice, soup, sauces) and gable top cartons (milk, juice) managed in the Quebec curbside collection system.

The two partners have committed to supporting each other’s efforts and collaborating in three key areas of activity: sharing and dissemination of information through communication tools and participation in task forces; promotion of best practices and support of municipalities’ efforts to drive recycling education with residents and in schools; and initiatives to optimize the curbside collection value chain.
