Here we go!
As of November 1st, 2023, the deposit modernization project is taking off. This is the first phase of a major reform of Quebec's deposit system, with the aim of better recovering and recycling our beverage containers.
Two major changes as of November 1st 2023
*Excluding certain returnable glass bottles of 500 ml and over, which are returnable at 25 cents.
*Applicable to 100 ml to 2 l cans only.
Why a deposit-refund system?
100% of the redeemable cans and bottles that you return to the deposit-refund system are recycled. The system enables sorting of containers at source, which promotes recovery of high-quality materials. It is recognized as the most environmentally friendly way of recycling beverage containers.
