Quebec group wants political parties to recycle election signs
Plastic election posters can be dropped off at special drop-off points across Quebec
Recyc-Québec wants political parties to recycle and donate their federal election campaign signs after the election ends in October.
The organization says that the signs can be reused for art, decorations and urban props such as benches and tables.
The election signs are made of Coroplast plastic, which can be recycled by several organizations across the province.
The plastic cannot be recycled by normal means and must be donated to drop-off points. In Montreal, local boroughs Éco-quartier centres accept and reuse the plastic.
