Some figures


4 active recycling centres

A top priority for Société VIA is to distinguish itself through the high quality of its products. That is the reason why our team invested several million dollars to improve the equipment in our recycling centres in recent years.

Our main recycling centres are among the most advanced in the world. They are located in Quebec City, Lévis, Rivière-du-Loup and Dégelis, the latest being a centre specialized in sugarbush tubing recycling.

220 employees

At the heart of recycling is our team that is responsible for making sure that each type of material is processed properly. Société VIA’s mission is to integrate people with functional limitations, who represent more than 60% of our workforce.

Our employees benefit from the leadership of a team of experts in special education and human resources. Thanks to their constant work, Société VIA can proudly maintain a retention rate of more than 80%.

175 municipalities

The territory we serve goes from James Bay to Natashquan on the north shore, and from Lotbinière to the Gaspésie and New Brunswick on the south shore.

Since 2006, we also process recyclable materials coming from the French islands of Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon.

100,000 tonnes per year



These numbers represent the quantity of recyclable materials that we process each year thanks to the expertise of our team working in our recycling centres. Since the beginnings of separate collection in Québec in 1992, Société VIA sorted and processed over a million tonnes of recyclable materials, which makes our company one of the most important companies in Québec in the recycling industry.

The product of our efforts

Since we began sorting and processing recyclable materials in 1992, we helped:

  • Avoiding the burial of more than 1,000,000 tonnes of recyclable materials.
  • Which is the equivalent of 400 Olympic swimming pools filled with recyclable materials!
  • Preventing the emission of over 400,000 tonnes of greenhouse gases.
  • Saving more than 5,000,000 trees from being cut down.
