Over $750,000 in grants for proper waste sorting

Mayor John Belvedere, is pleased to inform Pointe-Claire residents that a total of $757,188 has been paid to the City for 2020 thanks to their daily and sustained waste-sorting efforts.

“These grants, which were awarded thanks to the excellent performance of everyone involved, confirm the community’s concern for current and future generations, which is reflected in their willingness to adopt sustainlable behaviours,” Mayor Belvedere said.

The amounts provided in the form of a grant are reinvested in municipal services, allowing us to continuously improve the service offer to the community. This grant includes an amount provided by the Québec government for waste elimination and a compensation from RECYC-QUÉBEC for selective collection of recyclable materials.

Improvements made to collections in recent years, the addition of collection points, and the Zero-Waste Challenge all contribute to improving the City’s waste management performance. As a result, the City has recorded a 32% decrease in waste tonnage sent to landfill over the past six years.

Moreover, year after year, Pointe-Claire continues to improve its waste recovery record. “This record reflects remarkable citizen contribution and involvement, and this makes me very proud,” Mayor Belvedere concluded.
