Pilot projects to modernize the deposit-return
Since July 31, 2021, pilot projects have been conducted in six Quebec cities to test recovery methods and gather information that will be used to build the future Quebec deposit model.
By the end of 2022, the Quebec government will be in a position to extend the deposit to all ready-to-drink containers from 100 ml to 2 L. The objective of this initiative is to better recover and recycle our materials in Quebec. Thus, water bottles, wine and spirits bottles and juice and milk cartons will be subject to the deposit-return.
