PUBLIC CONSULTATION ON THE PROJECT OF THE 2023-2030 PGMR OF THE MRC OF ARGENTEUIL

Towards a more efficient and responsible management of residual materials - The Council of the MRC of Argenteuil adopted the Project of the 2023-2030 Residual Materials Management Plan (PGMR) at its regular meeting of October 12th and is now launching the public consultations.

A PGMR is a tool that aims to develop and implement concrete means to achieve the objectives of the Quebec Residual Materials Management Policy, its Action Plan and its Strategy for the Recovery of Organic Materials. These objectives are mainly aimed at reducing the quantity of landfilled materials and increasing the recycling and recovery of recyclable materials, organic materials and construction, renovation and demolition waste.

Be part of the change - Argenteuil residents are invited to have their say on the PGMR Project, either by attending a public consultation meeting or by sending in their briefs or comments.
