Boucherville, Québec -- September 25, 2017 – This year’s ARPAC conference was organized by the Centre du Camion Lussier in Ste-Julie, Québec. The facility is a member of ARPAC and is also celebrating its 50th anniversary. Its founder and owner, Mr. Gabriel Lussier, was honoured during the banquet on Saturday evening, receiving the "ARPAC Award for Excellence and Innovation Roger Fugère Sr." The theme for the evening was ‘The 60’s and 70’s’.
During the Annual General Meeting of Shareholders on Friday morning, members adopted a resolution to incorporate the 3RV Participation into all members as of January 1, 2018. This amount will be added to each used car and truck parts invoices, in order to pay a part of the investments that are constantly made by the recyclers in Reduction at source, Reuse, Recycling and Valorisation of the vehicles.

The ARPAC Foundation raised more than $ 42,700 over the weekend, thanks to generous donors, insurers, suppliers and recyclers, all united to help people in difficult situations, including the young Frédérique Morin who had a great time on the dance floor on Saturday evening with her sister Charlie and the recyclers.
