About the compensation plan

Since March 1, 2005, the compensation plan enacted by the Act and the Regulation Respecting Compensation for Municipal Services Provided to Recover and Reclaim Residual Materials  means that targeted businesses and organizations are required by law to finance their share of the net costs of municipal curbside recycling services, from a perspective of sustainable development.

The financing of those net costs is achieved through contributions by the targeted businesses and organizations, calculated based on the materials and quantities generated (measured in metric tonnes).
