Coop Les Valoristes is back under the Jacques Cartier Bridge

14 June 2018

The sixth edition of the Coop Les Valoristes’ mobile collection site will be set up under the Jacques Cartier Bridge this year on June 17 and 18 and June 24 and 25.

Through permanent and specialized depots that collect returnable containers, this social economy non-profit helps people who are having a hard time finding a job do meaningful work and reintegrate into the labour market.

After installing multiple depots in the city to collect returnable containers, they then launched the mobile deposit program to reduce how much the “valoristes” have to travel, as these people often have health and motor skill problems. The mobile site moves all around Montreal so that it is more accessible.
