Waste management

Innovative equipment for collecting and sorting waste

Benefiting from a progressive political context and capable workforce, Québec manufacturers have developed high-end, cutting-edge equipment for the residual materials sector that gives them access to an international clientele.

Québec's strengths

Since the early 1990s, Québec has helped create a favourable climate for the development of its residual materials industry.

A comprehensive residual materials management policy now puts municipalities in charge through regulations that favour recovery and incentives for developing and adopting high-performance technologies.

These conditions have contributed to an impressive increase in sorting centres in Québec, with local equipment manufacturers flourishing as a result, offering materials collection, sorting, and conditioning products for the entire sector.

Over the years, they have developed powerful expertise and emerged as leaders in North America and influential players worldwide.
