Consignaction

Consignaction is the emblem of deposit-refund in Quebec, the essential link in the recycling of returnable beverage containers, whether made of aluminum, plastic, glass, and soon multi-layer.

Reporting to the Association québécoise de récupération des contenants de boissons (AQRCB), which is the designated management organization (DMO) by RECYC-QUÉBEC, Consignaction oversees the development, implementation, financing and management of the modernized deposit-refund system, based on the Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) principle. Consignaction brings together the various beverage producers involved in the recovery, reuse, recycling and reclamation of beverage containers in the province of Quebec.
