Sales Recording Module Recycling Program
Since November 1, 2023, the restaurant sector has been undergoing an IT shift to replace the sales recording module (SRM) with a cloud solution (the WEB-SRM).
For more information about the IT solution, click Required Equipment.
As SRMs have reached the end of their useful life, we set up an eco-friendly recycling program that's simple and free to securely destroy all confidential information they contain.
From November 1, 2023, to December 31, 2025, any SRM holder who wants to do their part for the environment can use the program.
All SRMs and their accessories (cable, power supply and keypad screen) will be recycled, so nothing will end up in a landfill.
No financial compensation is offered for recycling SRMs.
There are two ways to recycle your SRMs.

You can order a recycling kit using our ordering forms and publications online service. We'll mail you a kit so you can ship us your SRM (and any cables, power supplies or keypad screens) free of charge.
You have to request an SRM recycling kit. Each kit includes instructions.
Revenu Québec will consider receiving an SRM as tacit consent to recycle it. No SRMs will be returned.
If you're a QST registrant and you're subject to mandatory billing measures in the restaurant sector, make sure you've taken the steps below before getting rid of your SRM.
If you don't take these steps, you may no longer be able to comply with current tax measures and may be liable to penalties and fines.
Get the required equipment
Before deactivating and reinitializing all the SRMs in your establishment, make sure to have the equipment required to use the IT solution and send us your transaction data.
Produce and file your Sommaire périodique des ventes with Revenu Québec
You must produce and file all the Sommaire périodique des ventes (periodic sales summary) reports required until the last period that you used your SRM(s).
If you've stopped your activities, makes sure that you produced and filed all required periodic sales summary reports until the last period the SRMs were in use.
Make a backup copy of your data
You must make a backup copy of your data and keep it for six years after the last taxation year concerned.
You're also eligible for the recycling program if you're a third party and you hold an SRM but you're not the owner. You may be:
- an installer;
- a developer;
- a bankruptcy trustee;
- a commercial space lessor;
- an actioneer;
- any other person with an SRM in their possession.
We'll ship the SRMs and their accessories to an electronic material recycler. The memory card containing the transaction data will be removed from the SRM then safely destroyed and recycled.
You must request your recycling kit or bring your SRM to one of our drop-off points by December 31, 2025.
We reserve the right to modify the program's terms and conditions at any time.
