RecycleMédias represents hundreds of newspapers published by the following organizations: MediaQMI, The Gazette, Le Devoir, the Québec Community Newspaper Association (QCNA), the Association des médias écrits communautaires du Québec (AMEQ), Quebec Weekly Association (HQ) and several other independent publications.
The mission of RecycleMédias is to represent certain businesses and organizations targeted by the Act in their responsibility to finance the net costs of municipal curbside recycling services and, to ensure that financing, to establish equitable contribution rates.
