Montreal Seeks New Recycling Operator
Rebuts Solides Canadiens, which operates four recycling centers in Montreal, announced it will cease operations in the coming days.

The company that runs four recycling centers in the city of Montreal recently informed the government that it will cease operations in the coming days.

According to a CBC News report, city officials say residents should continue to put out their recycling as scheduled, but the city is not sure who will receive the materials from the city’s sorting centers. The company, Rebuts Solides Canadiens, said it could no longer find a market for its recycled paper and is no longer profitable.
