Pointe-Claire's Waste Management Squad



SUMMER WASTE MANAGEMENT SQUAD


The Squad is crisscrossing the streets of Pointe-Claire on bicycles all summer to promote good environmental practices.

In its 2020 waste management report for the Island of Montréal, Pointe-Claire surpassed the government’s waste recovery targets.


Pointe-Claire recovered 78% of its recyclables and bulky items as well as construction and renovation waste, surpassing the government’s 70% target. For the recovery of organic waste, Pointe-Claire again surpassed the government’s target of 60%, with a result of 66%.


Due to the pandemic, the quantity of landfill waste on the Island of Montréal increased by 3%, while the percentage was 1.2% for Pointe-Claire, where landfill tonnage has steadily decreased over the last decade.


The Waste Management Squad is available all summer to help continue to reduce the volume of waste material collected without added value.


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 Squad will be available for telephone consultations and help with sorting at home and during City events.
