A recycling certificate is provided after each pickup. This document includes the recycled weights per category of each material collected. This certificate may be used as proof in order to obtain different certifications.
The annual review is provided once a year. This document includes the total recycled weights of each material collected, per category as well as a comparative overview of the previous years. This is very useful for organizations that are looking to obtain different environmental certifications.

The Handling of Matter at MultiRecycle
MultiRecycle ensures the responsible recycling of your matter by calling on recognized recyclers from different government programs, such as EPRA, Recycfluo, Call2Recycle, Éco-Peinture, SOGHU, Switch Out, etc.
Electronic and electric products are sent to recyclers who have been audited and approved in Quebec or Ontario. They dismantle the product according to its material and they send the sorted pieces to the proper recycling channels. For example, plastic is reduced to pellets and then sent to the plastic channel. Precious metals are melted and reused as raw material.
All batteries, rechargeable or not, are sent to approved processing facilities. They are then used for the fabrication of new products, such as new batteries, new stainless steel products, etc.
Battery recycling installations use thermal recovery processes in order to preserve metal components, such as nickel, iron, lead, cadmium, and cobalt. Certain processes even salvage plastic and other components.
Mercury-based light bulbs collected by MultiRecycle are recycled through recognized recyclers. A triple distillation process is used to ensure the safe handling of mercury. A portion of the glass is stabilized, the rest can be repurposed in the fabrication of other products, such as mineral wool, insulating fibers or for construction purposes.
Our recycling service accepts and receives household appliances, all types of furniture made of wood, metal, plastic, natural or synthetic fiber as well as all sorts of construction waste. Our recycling process helped many LEED projects to gain points in order to obtain this accreditation.
We know that materials such as metals and glass can easily be recycled endlessly. However, what happens to materials like wood? Wood is a mass of energy ready to be used. When biomass (wood residue) is used instead of fossil fuels, this contributes to the reduction of carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere. During its combustion process, carbon from the atmosphere previously absorbed by the wood is released and returned in the air. This is considered a neutral carbon cycle.
Halocarbons found in refrigeration appliances initially need to be removed from the appliance itself. The extraction of this gas is an essential step in the responsible recycling process. MultiRecycle is one of the few companies within Quebec to possess the necessary training for the extraction of this gas. The gas is then sent to an authorized transformation centre that ensures the safe disposal of the matter.
All paint is sent through the Quebec system of paint recovery. The receivable products become raw material for the fabrication of recycled paint. Other products are directed to specialized disposal centres.
Used oils, coolants and mercury thermostats are directed towards approved processors according to the different government programs responsible for their handling. The oils and coolants received are treated to be reused.
The other hazardous materials are sent to Quebec centres that have the appropriate authorization certificates necessary to their operations.
