Over $900,000 in grants for proper waste sorting

Mayor Tim Thomas is pleased to inform Pointe-Claire residents that $908,923 in dues have been paid to the City for 2021 thanks to their daily and sustained involvement in reducing the amount of waste and better sorting it.

“These grants, awarded thanks to everyone’s excellent performance, confirm our community’s commitment to protecting our environment for current and future generations,” said Mayor Thomas.

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 Gouvernement du Québec for waste elimination and compensation from RECYC-QUÉBEC for the selective collection of recyclable materials.

The City is continuing its actions to support the commitment of residents, in particular by promoting the grant for reusable hygiene products, adding boxes in municipal buildings to recycle disposable safety equipment, and taking into consideration the recommendations of the Environmental and Sustainable Development Advisory Committee in its decisions.

Year after year, the City of Pointe-Claire continues to improve its waste collection record. “This record is an example of remarkable citizen contribution and participation, and that makes me very proud,” concluded Mayor Thomas.
