2022 Leader in Durability award winner – The City of Pointe-Claire and its citizens recognized for commitment to environmental initiative

The City of Pointe-Claire is proud to announce that it was the recipient of the 2022 Leader in Durability award for successfully recycling 4,071 kilograms of batteries last year. It is thanks to the involvement of citizens in the management of residual materials that we are able to safely dispose of batteries and lower our ecological footprint. We thank the citizens for their efforts and invite them to continue to do so.

“Appel à Recycler” (Call 2 Recycle) is an environmental organization with a goal of ensuring the proper collection and disposal of batteries and other hazardous household waste. For over two decades, the organization has worked with cities such as Pointe-Claire to help implement sustainable battery disposal methods.
