"We are completing the work to bring the modernization of curbside recycling into force in January 2025 with the signing of contracts for sorting and material sales. The vast process undertaken to conclude partnership agreements with municipal organizations for front-line services required significant work.  It resulted in a small revolution because in Quebec we now have groups of municipal organizations which are signing agreements."

? Maryse Vermette, President and Chief Executive Officer

"In 2023, the Éco Entreprises Québec team was very present in the field and achieved its objectives, while ensuring sound governance for the coming years. The transition to EPR curbside recycling will require an additional financial effort for our members, but we are confident that this investment will provide tangible results for system optimization."

? Denis Brisebois, Board Chair
