Waste collection is a responsibility that you want to confer to an experienced, rigorous and reliable partner, whether you are a city, a business, an industrial enterprise or an institution.
Waste collection is an important matter that we take very seriously at RCI Environnement. Our goal is to provide top-quality service at all times.
Here are some basic guidelines to help you maximize on the quantity of waste that is recovered for recycling.
Recover milk and juice containers
Gable-top containers and Tetra Pak products are now completely recyclable, so both small and large milk and juice cartons are welcome in the recovery bin!
No more plastic bags!
Not all sites can recover plastic bags, so you can help the sorters by not piling paper and cardboard in plastic bags.
Separate containers and lids
It is important to separate containers and their lids when recycling, since they are not always manufactured in the same way.
For sanitary reasons, we recommend that you rinse containers before they can be recovered.
The number of the recyclable plastic is printed on the underside of the container (1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 7).
Non recyclable plastic
Plastic bags and films, cellophane, polystyrene foam, plastic toys and tools, binders and rulers, lighters, disposable razors, containers for motor oil, watering hoses, carpets, pool covers, #6 plastic and rubber.
Cans, aluminum plates and foil, ferrous metal.
