Summer Waste Management Squad

The Squad is criss-crossing the streets of Pointe-Claire on bicycle all summer to promote good environmental practices.

In 2019, Pointe-Claire ranked second among all cities on the island of Montréal in terms of waste management. Thanks to proactive City policies and our citizens’ commitment to sustainable development, a total of 12,003 tons of waste materials were recovered, recycled or reused, amounting to about 73% of the total volume that was picked up.

The Waste Management Squad is available all summer to help maintain these encouraging results and continue to reduce the volume of waste material collected without added value, we have set up a Waste Management Squad.

Do you need information about sorting, household composting, the kitchen cone, or which materials are accepted in the City’s various collections? Would you like advice on how to participate in the organic waste collection? The Waste Management Squad is here to help.

Due to the current circumstances, the Squad will have a different mandate for the summer of 2021 and will be available for telephone consultations only. They will criss-cross the streets of Pointe-Claire to analyze the waste put out for the various collections and hand out educational pamphlets as needed.
