The Waste Management Squad met with 4,500 residents this summer

The mayor of the City of Pointe-Claire, John Belvedere, and the members of City Council are proud to announce that the Waste Management Squad met with nearly 4,500 residents and visited over 10,350 homes this summer to promote good environmental practices.

“Pointe-Claire is ranked first among cities on the Island of Montréal in terms of waste management in 2017. This result shows just how much our community cares about protecting the environment,” stated Mayor Belvedere.

During these visits, the squad informed residents about the types of waste accepted, proper waste sorting at source, household composting, and using the kitchen cone for organic waste. They also distributed over 2,000 of these cones, over 2,350 odour eliminator kits, around 400 copies of the children’s book Leonard’s Composting Adventures, and ordered nearly 150 bins for organic and recyclable waste.

The squad also set up information booths at many events and held several telephone consultations to answer questions from residents in a simple, fast, and effective manner.

The Waste Management Squad will be back next summer to continue offering adapted services and personalized advice to the entire community.
