Terracycle Program

Marie-Claire Gahel-Calouche

To promote ecological practices, since 2014 we have been encouraging customers to contribute to our trash collection for the TerraCycle recycling program to reduce waste!

Why help?

Each garbage will be exchanged for a donation to a charity of your choice. We are committed to donating these funds to the Breakfast Club of Canada.

Comment help?

Customers may bring items to be recycled in a sealed, leak-proof bag, such as a garbage bag. You must call the organization one day before depositing the said bag in order to inform them of the type of garbage deposited.

What can we recycle?

Here is a list of items that are picked up for the recycling program. TerraCycle requires each item to be recycled separately:

What other ecological actions do you take? 

In an effort to protect the environment, the following tips are encouraged:

  • Purchase of local and pesticide-free food
  • Selection of foods with compostable or recyclable packaging
  • Use of recyclable and reusable containers to store food
  • Meatless consumption one day a week (ex: “Meatless Mondays”)
  • Request for a paperless option for documents such as invoices.
  • Compost organic waste, if possible
