Pilot projects to modernize deposit-refund

Since July 31, 2021, pilot projects have been running in six Quebec cities to test recovery methods and gather information that will be used to build Quebec's future deposit-refund model.

By the end of 2022, the Quebec government will be in a position to extend deposit-refund to all ready-to-drink beverage containers from 100 ml to 2 L. The aim of this initiative is to better recover and recycle our materials in Quebec. As a result, water bottles, wine and spirits bottles, and juice and milk cartons will be subject to deposit-refund.
