2019 waste management report – Pointe-Claire ranks second on the island and exceeds all government recovery targets
The mayor of the City of Pointe-Claire, John Belvedere, and the members of City Council are proud of the results obtained for proper waste management in the 2019 Agglomeration of Montréal report, as Pointe-Claire has exceeded all the objectives set by the Québec government and ranks second among all cities on the island of Montréal.
“These figures are the result of citizens’ strong commitment and the many actions taken by the City to promote sustainable development for the better of current and future generations, and I am very pleased about this. Our community is very committed to environmental protection and proper waste sorting,” Mayor John Belvedere said.
The government’s target of 70% for recyclable material recovery has been exceeded, with a result of 78%. This figure places Pointe-Claire first on the island of Montréal. For the recovery of construction and renovation materials and bulky waste, Pointe-Claire ranks first once again this year, exceeding the 70% objective with a result of 80%. For organic waste, the 60% objective was reached for the first time, with a result of 61%. The grand total of materials recovered puts Pointe-Claire in second place among the 33 cities and boroughs on the island of Montréal. The results show the percentage of materials recovered out of the total materials generated.
Once again this year, the City continued its actions to support citizens’ commitment, in particular by renewing the grant for reusable hygiene products, creating a trivia game on waste management available at the multiservice counter, and launching the Zero-Waste Challenge, in which nine families will share their tips for reducing their waste production at the source.
