Your containers, a precious resource

Our teams travel all over Canada to collect contaminated plastic containers that cannot be recycled by municipalities. Collection ensures that these containers do not end up in landfills and make your practices greener.

In 2022, we collected over 10,000 metric tons of contaminated containers in Canada.

Is collection a paid service?

No. However, this varies by province and under the Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) regulations. For example, collection of small-format oil containers is free in each Canadian province (for up to 30 or 50 litres depending on the province).

To find out the list of products covered by the regulations and for which collection is free, please refer to the provincial organization responsible for the program.

These programs are subject to change; you can periodically consult our updated list here.

Do I have to pay for recovery bins and plastic bags?

Not at all if you use our services. RPM eco will provide you with the number of bins required according to the volume you generate. Bags for transporting small containers will also be provided to you free of charge and in sufficient quantity.

Is there a subsidy program? How do I qualify?

There is no government subsidy for the recovery of contaminated plastic containers.

Instead, it is the responsibility of the producer (the one who markets the product) to finance a free collection service for the end-user or consumer.

See the Recyc-Québec website or that of your province for a detailed description.

Do you collect plastics on a set frequency (for example, every other Wednesday)?

No. Our predictive systems allow us to assess the best time to retrieve your plastics. There’s no need to call us. We’ll be there on schedule, based on the time of year and when the volumes to be collected meet the target we’ve established with you.

Our pickup services do not follow the same frequencies as those offered by municipalities.
