Saint-Jérôme, Quebec -- June 22, 2017 -- ARPAC, Quebec's provincial auto recycling association, has announced a new initiative to support the ongoing investments required to reduce the environmental footprint of end-of-life vehicles.
The initiative takes the form of a small surcharge added to all invoices at the association's 34 member facilities. The charges are listed as 3RV (Reduction at Source, Reuse and Recycling of end-of-life vehicles).
The fees will never rise beyond a certain level, regardless of the total cost of the parts order. The charge is 10 percent of the total invoice, up to a maximum of $5. For example, if the total bill is $15, the 3RV charge is $1.50. If the invoice is $200, the 3RV participation is $5. Parts orders more expensive than this would still only pay $5.
“Buying a green piece is an ecological as well as economical gesture”, stated Simon Matte, CEO of ARPAC.
