DIVISION I
PURPOSE
1. This Regulation determines certain parameters of the compensation regime under subdivision 4.1 of Division VII of Chapter I of the Environment Quality Act (chapter Q-2) whose purpose, together with other legislative measures ensuring residual materials management, is to prevent and reduce the impact of residual materials on the environment.
More specifically, this Regulation designates the materials or classes of materials to which the compensation regime applies and determines the calculation method and the performance and efficiency criteria used to determine the annual compensation.
The Regulation also provides a minimum framework for the schedule of contributions that must be established pursuant to section 53.31.14 of the Act by establishing exemptions for certain persons in respect of certain materials and by targeting the persons that alone may be required to pay contributions in respect of certain materials.
The Regulation also determines the indemnity payable to the Société québécoise de récupération et de recyclage by the persons to whom the compensation regime applies, and related payment terms and conditions.

DIVISION IV
METHOD OF CALCULATION, DIVISION, PAYMENT AND DISTRIBUTION OF COMPENSATION
O.C. 1049-2004, Div. 6; S.Q. 2011, c. 14, s. 18; O.C. 1302-2013, s. 2.
§ 1.  — Calculation of costs eligible for compensation and of management indemnity
S.Q. 2011, c. 14, s. 18.
7. The calculation of the cost of the services provided by a municipality that is eligible for compensation must be based on the net cost of the services provided during the year preceding the year for which the compensation is owed. That cost corresponds to the expenses incurred by the municipality during that year to collect, transport, sort and condition the materials or classes of materials subject to compensation, from which is deducted, any income, rebate or other gain related to the materials and received by the municipality.
For calculating costs eligible for compensation owed for each of the years 2013 and 2014, an amount equivalent to 7.5% of the result obtained, after deducting the incomes, rebates or other gains referred to in the first paragraph, is also subtracted to take into account materials or classes of materials that, even if not referred to in section 2, are nonetheless recovered and treated during the collection, transportation, sorting and conditioning of the classes of materials designated in section 2. For the year 2015 and for subsequent years, the amount to be subtracted is equivalent to 6.6% of the result obtained. For the year 2015, that amount is subtracted by the Société québécoise de récupération et de recyclage from the net cost declared by the municipalities pursuant to section 8.6.
Expenses incurred by a municipality for the purchase of containers, for information, awareness and educational activities or for the granting of service contracts and the follow-up on payments owed under such contracts are not included in the costs mentioned in the first paragraph.
O.C. 1049-2004, s. 7; S.Q. 2011, c. 14, s. 18; O.C. 1302-2013, s. 3; O.C. 1138-2015, s. 1.
8. For the purpose of calculating the cost of the services they provide that is eligible for compensation, the municipalities are divided into 6 groups:
(1)  municipalities serving fewer than 3,000 inhabitants, situated less than 100 km from the cities of Montréal or Québec;
(2)  municipalities serving 3,000 to 25,000 inhabitants, situated less than 100 km from the cities of Montréal or Québec;
(3)  municipalities serving more than 25,000 inhabitants, situated less than 100 km from the cities of Montréal or Québec, including those 2 cities;
(4)  municipalities serving fewer than 3,000 inhabitants, situated 100 km or more from the cities of Montréal or Québec;
(5)  municipalities serving 3,000 to 25,000 inhabitants, situated 100 km or more from the cities of Montréal or Québec; and
(6)  municipalities serving more than 25,000 inhabitants, situated 100 km or more from the cities of Montréal or Québec.
O.C. 1049-2004, s. 8; S.Q. 2011, c. 14, s. 18.
8.1. The Société québécoise de récupération et de recyclage determines, for each municipality, the cost of the services that is eligible for compensation by comparing the performance and efficiency of a municipality with the performance and efficiency of the other municipalities of the same group, using the factors established under sections 8.2 and 8.3.
S.Q. 2011, c. 14, s. 18.
8.2. The performance and efficiency factor for each municipality is determined by applying the following formula:
(cost/tonnes)
PE = ______________
(kg/inhab.)
“PE” is the performance and efficiency factor of the municipality for the year concerned;
“cost” is the net cost declared by the municipality for the services it provided during the year;
“tonnes” is the quantity, in metric tonnes, of materials subject to compensation that was recovered or reclaimed during the year, as declared by the municipality;
“kg” is the quantity, in kilograms, of materials subject to compensation that was recovered or reclaimed during the year, as declared by the municipality; and
“inhab.” is the number of inhabitants in the municipality, as determined in the Order in Council made under section 29 of the Act respecting municipal territorial organization (chapter O-9).
S.Q. 2011, c. 14, s. 18.
8.3. The performance and efficiency factor for each group of municipalities constituted under section 8 is determined by carrying out the following operations in the following order:
(1)  once the performance and efficiency factor for each municipality in a group has been determined under section 8.2, the 2 subsets formed by the factors situated, respectively, in the lowest 12.5% and the highest 12.5% are excluded, and the arithmetic mean of the factors remaining between those 2 subsets is then calculated;
(2)  the standard deviation is calculated, that is, the mean difference between the remaining factors mentioned in paragraph 1 and the arithmetic mean established under that paragraph; and
(3)  the results obtained in paragraphs 1 and 2 are added together.
S.Q. 2011, c. 14, s. 18; .
8.4. If the performance and efficiency factor determined for a municipality is equal to or lower than that established for the group of municipalities to which it belongs, the cost of the services provided by the municipality that is eligible for compensation corresponds to the net cost declared by the municipality under section 8.6.
If the performance and efficiency factor determined for a municipality is higher than that of the group of municipalities to which it belongs, the cost of the services provided by the municipality that is eligible for compensation corresponds to the amount obtained by applying the following formula:
EC = [PEG × (kg/inhab.)] × tonnes
“EC” is the cost of the services provided by the municipality that is eligible for compensation;
“PEG” is the performance and efficiency factor determined for the group of municipalities to which the municipality belongs;
“kg” is the quantity, in kilograms, of materials subject to compensation that was recovered or reclaimed during the year, as declared by the municipality;
“inhab.” is the number of inhabitants in the municipality, as determined in the Order in Council made under section 29 of the Act respecting municipal territorial organization (chapter O-9); and
“tonnes” is the quantity, in metric tonnes, of materials subject to compensation that was recovered or reclaimed during the year, as declared by the municipality.
Despite the foregoing, the costs eligible for compensation for the services provided by a municipality may in no case be lower than 70% of the net costs declared by the municipality under section 8.6 if the territory of that municipality is located 400 km or more from the territory of Ville de Montréal or Ville de Québec.
For the purposes of sections 8.2 and 8.4 of this Regulation for the year 2013, the Société québécoise de récupération et de recyclage must deduct from the net cost of the services provided and declared by a municipality for that year, an amount equivalent to 7.5% of the net cost.
Likewise, the Société must subtract from the total quantity of materials subject to compensation declared by a municipality a quantity equivalent to 7.5% of that total quantity. (O.C. 1302-2013, s. 11)
S.Q. 2011, c. 14, s. 18; 699-2018O.C. 699-2018, s. 4.
8.4.1. For the compensation owed for the year 2015, the “cost” variable referred to in section 8.2 represents the net cost declared by a municipality less an amount equivalent to 6.6% of that cost.
The “kg” and “tonnes” variables referred to in sections 8.2 and 8.4 represent the quantity of materials declared by a municipality less a quantity equivalent to 6.6% of that quantity.
O.C. 1138-2015, s. 2.
8.5. To indemnify the municipalities both for the management costs related to the services they provide for the recovery and reclamation of materials or classes of materials subject to compensation, and for the purchase of the containers required to collect them, an amount equivalent to 8.55% of the eligible cost determined under section 8.4 must be added to that cost to determine the annual compensation owed to each municipality.
S.Q. 2011, c. 14, s. 18.
8.6. Every municipality is required to send to the Société québécoise de récupération et de recyclage, not later than 30 June each year, a declaration stating, for the year preceding the year for which the compensation is owed, the quantity of materials subject to compensation that was recovered and reclaimed in its territory and the net cost of the services it provided for the collection, transportation, sorting and conditioning of those materials determined pursuant to section 7.
For the compensation owed for each of the years 2013 and 2014, the quantity of materials subject to compensation is calculated by subtracting a quantity equivalent to 7.5% of the total quantity of materials recovered, during the preceding year, during the collection, transportation, sorting and conditioning of the materials subject to compensation. For the compensation owed for the year 2016 and for subsequent years, the quantity of materials to be subtracted is equivalent to 6.6% of the total quantity of materials recovered.
The declaration must be signed by the municipality’s external auditor, who must state whether, in the external auditor’s opinion, the declaration fairly presents the information it contains.
S.Q. 2011, c. 14, s. 18; O.C. 1302-2013, s. 4; O.C. 1138-2015, s. 3.
8.7. In accordance with section 53.31.4 of the Environment Quality Act (chapter Q-2), the compensation owed to a municipality that fails to send a declaration complying with the prescriptions of section 8.6 to the Société québécoise de récupération et de recyclage within the time set in that section is reduced by 10% as a penalty, unless the Société deems that the failure results from special circumstances beyond the municipality’s control.
If a municipality fails to file the declaration by 1 September of a given year, the cost eligible for compensation is calculated by applying the formula provided in the second paragraph of section 8.4, with the following modifications:
(1)  the performance and efficiency factor “PEG” is replaced by the smallest performance and efficiency factor calculated for a municipality that belongs to that same group and used for the calculation under paragraph 1 of section 8.3;
(2)  the quantity of materials subject to compensation that was recovered or reclaimed during the year in the territory of the municipality in default is estimated by the Société on the basis of the most recent data it has on other municipalities in that same group; and
(3)  the amount obtained is reduced by 15%.
Despite the foregoing, no compensation is owed to a municipality that, on 30 June of the year that follows the year for which compensation is owed, did not send its declaration to the Société. For the year 2012, no compensation is owed to a municipality that did not send its declaration before 30 June 2014.
However, the provisions of the second and third paragraphs do not apply if the Société deems, in accordance with the third paragraph of section 53.31.4 of the Environment Quality Act, that special circumstances beyond the municipality’s control prevented the municipality from respecting the prescribed conditions when sending in its declaration. In such a case, the cost of the services provided by the municipality that is eligible for compensation for that year is calculated by the Société by applying the formula provided in the second paragraph of section 8.4. The quantity of materials subject to compensation is estimated by the Société in accordance with subparagraph 2 of the second paragraph of this section.
Even if compensation is paid to a municipality covered by the fourth paragraph, the municipality must file its declaration with the Société as soon as possible.
S.Q. 2011, c. 14, s. 18; O.C. 1302-2013, s. 5.
8.7.1. Any correction to a declaration sent by a municipality before 1 September of the year for which compensation is owed to the municipality must be received by the Société québécoise de récupération et de recyclage not later than 30 June of the following year.
The corrected declaration is subject to the conditions provided for in the third paragraph of section 8.6.
Adjustments resulting from a correction to a declaration are applied to the compensation owed to the municipality the following year.
