  • On December 12, 2002, the Quebec National Assembly passed Bill 102 entitled An Act to amend the Environment Quality Act and the Act respecting the Société québécoise de récupération et de recyclage. Among the measures implemented by the Bill was the addition of sections 53.31.1 to 53.31.20 to the Environment Quality Act, which sections set up a regime designed to allow municipalities to be compensated for the services they provide in order to ensure that various residual materials are recovered and reclaimed.
