Québec Waste Reduction Week – Strong community commitment

The mayor of the City of Pointe-Claire, John Belvedere, and the members of City Council are proud to highlight the community’s commitment to sustainable development to benefit current and future generations during Québec Waste Reduction Week, from October 21 to 28.

“Pointe-Claire is ranked first among cities on the Island of Montréal in terms of waste management in 2017, which shows how important protecting the environment and proper waste sorting are to our residents,” stated Mayor John Belvedere.

Once again this year, the City performed many actions to reinforce this commitment, including the Waste Management Squad visiting residents’ homes during the summer; hosting workshops in schools, daycare centres and day camps; distributing the children’s book Leonard’s Composting Adventures; and adding 27 collections.

In addition, the City is now a representative for the Circuit Zéro Déchet. This service promotes the zero-waste lifestyle and lists businesses that allow customers to shop with reusable containers. Pointe-Claire businesses interested in joining the Circuit should contact Public Works at tp@pointe-claire.ca or 514-630-1230. Merchants will then be added to www.circuitzerodechet.com free of charge.

Finally, residents are invited to attend a lecture about the zero-waste lifestyle on Wednesday, October 24, at 7 p.m. at the Central Library.

“Québec Waste Reduction Week allows us once again to highlight our residents’ actions and to continue raising even more awareness,” said Mayor Belvedere in conclusion.
