Québec Waste Reduction Week
Pointe-Claire still committed to sustainable development
The mayor of the City of Pointe-Claire, Morris Trudeau, and members of City Council are proud to recognize once again residents’ actions focused on sustainable development for the benefit of current and future generations as part of Québec Waste Reduction Week, which takes place until October 29.
“Pointe-Claire is ranked second among cities on the Island of Montréal in terms of waste management, which shows the importance residents place on protecting our environment,” stated Mayor Trudeau.
In Pointe-Claire, our commitment to sustainable development can be seen through the many actions we take every year. The active presence of the Waste Management Squad this summer, Earth Day activities in spring, and installing two- and three-compartment bins in public facilities and municipal buildings are just a few examples.
There have also been many initiatives over the past few months to raise awareness among residents about actively participating in organic waste collection at home: creating a children’s book; gradually implementing organic waste collection in multi-unit buildings; offering collections for recyclables and organic waste to the industrial, commercial, and institutional sectors; organizing workshops in grade schools; and holding information meetings.
These actions allow us to optimize the reclamation of waste that otherwise would end up in our landfills, with no added value and to the detriment of our environment.
“We are proactive and hope to offer current and future generations the best possible planet. Québec Waste Reduction Week allows us once again to recognize our residents’ actions, and we are proud of that,” said Mayor Trudeau in conclusion.
