$150,000 grant – The City’s waste management initiatives recognized

The Mayor of the City of Pointe-Claire, Morris Trudeau, and members of City Council are pleased to announce that a $150,000 grant has been awarded to the City for its initiatives to promote collections for recyclable materials, organic waste, and household waste in parks and municipal buildings.

“This grant from Éco Entreprise Québec confirms the relevance of our initiatives as we constantly improve our sustainable development practices and make it easier for everyone to manage different types of waste,” stated Mayor Trudeau.

The grant refunds 70% of the cost of each piece of equipment installed in the City’s public spaces throughout the year to recover recyclable waste.

The bins, which can be identified with colours matching various collections, feature stickers that illustrate the main materials accepted to help residents use the bins properly and to help process waste faster.

Since 2016, nearly 200 bins have been installed to collect recyclable materials and household waste in public spaces, and over 40 bins have been installed for recyclable materials, organic waste, and household waste in municipal buildings and chalets.

“Proper sorting at source is the best way to manage waste at home and in parks, municipal buildings, and public spaces. These simple, everyday actions will help us maintain and improve our commitment to sustainable development,” said Mayor Trudeau in conclusion.
