Under Bill 88, Paragraph 15, RecycleMédias is responsible for administering everything that comes under the “newspapers” class, as described:
This class includes paper and other cellulosic fibres used as a medium for written current affairs periodicals published on newsprint, particularly dailies and weeklies.
This class also includes containers and packaging used to deliver newspapers directly to the ultimate consumer or recipient.
Note that other classes of materials are also subject to the compensation plan provided for by the Act. Producers of these other materials are represented by the firm Eco-Entreprises Québec:
This class includes all types of flexible or rigid material, including paper, cardboard, plastic, glass or metal, used alone or in combination with other materials to contain, protect, wrap or display a product or a set of products at any stage in the movement of the product or set of products from the producer to the ultimate user or consumer.
However, this class excludes pallets designed to facilitate the handling and transport of a number of sales units or grouped packaging, and containers and packaging that are included in other classes of materials.
This class includes paper and other cellulosic fibres, whether or not they are used as a medium for text or images, except books and materials in the newspapers class of materials.
This class also includes containers or packaging used to deliver printed matter directly to the ultimate consumer or recipient.
