Clarification on fund transfers

Clarification - April 24, 2024


Further to the article in this morning's La Presse about security measures at the two Consignaction return sites, the the Quebec beverage container recycling association clarifies the following:


There will be no cash transfer operations in the next few days. The next ones will be carried out with the help of a specialized firm. An agreement in this regard, already planned and under discussion for some time, is being finalized and is about to be implemented.


Contrary to what the article implies, no funds were moved by the employees of the return sites. Nor do these employees have access to the cash in the machines.


Other measures are in place, as safety is obviously a priority.
