certification from the RECYC-QUÉBEC "ICI ON RECYCLE" program

MONTREAL, Oct. 18 /CNW Telbec/ - On October 8, RECYC-QUÉBEC recognized Marché Central for its actions supporting waste reduction, reuse, recycling and recovery by awarding it level 2 certification. As the first power centre in Quebec to obtain this distinction, Marché Central becomes an environmental leader in the retail industry.
