EBI runs four ecocentres in the Lanaudière region, as well as collaborates with and advises cities and municipalities on their ecocentre implementation projects.
These recycling centres take in materials that cannot be collected with other recyclable materials, either because they are too large or because they risk contaminating the separate collection. Accepted materials can differ from one ecocentre to another because each one is run based on the needs of its region.
Since spring 2015, the St-Thomas and MRC de Joliette ecocentres have become official drop-off points for the Electronic Products Recycling Association – Quebec (EPRA-Quebec). The list of accepted materials includes computers, computer and video game console peripherals, printers, scanners, fax machines, photocopiers, monitors and televisions, telephones, audio/video systems and more.
