Notre équipe d’experts en gestion de l’environnement
est fière d’appuyer le magazine « Consommer autrement »
de la Ville de Montréal
Message from parliament

Fellow Residents:

As cities grow, they generate more waste. This waste has a significant impact on our environment and
our quality of life.

We are developing appropriate solutions here in Montréal to deal with this problem at its source:
reusing, recycling, composting, recovering and only then disposing of the waste that remains.

Such a strategy requires the deployment of vast resources. Montréal, for example, has distributed more
wheeled recycling bins than any other city in Québec. It is moving forward on pilot composting proj-
ects, working with ecocentres and the building of large facilities for treating organic waste. We want
Montréal to go completely green in this area over the course of the decade, particularly as “green
economy” activities will produce constantly increasing wealth and jobs in the future.

We are deploying substantial efforts throughout the island, but they will still fall short without
your participation. Many of you have already started getting involved in this process, alongside pub-
lic and private organizations. We must continue along this path, knowing that it is through simple and
routine activities that we will change our habits and the way we think about our environment.

This magazine will assist you in this process. It provides addresses along with suggestions on the right
(and wrong) approaches to waste management.

We thank you for your participation in this collective challenge!

Gérald Tremblay Alan DeSousa


Mayor of Montréal Vice-chair of the Montréal Executive Committee Responsible for
Sustainable Development, the Environment and Parks

The 3Rs-V approach


The first “R,” reduction at the source, addresses
the general public and businesses: it means avoiding
waste production in the manufacturing, distribu-
tion and use of a product. For example, by not
using unnecessary wrapping or bags that will be
thrown in the garbage, we can save resources.

The second “R” signifies reuse. It refers to the re-


peated use of a product or packaging. Repairing

Équiterre’s slogan for many years. “Respon-

woman, now in her early 30’s. “It’s a whole

For Marianne Roberge, being an eco-con-

judgment, with no need to deprive your-

Furniture Takes The Reuse Network
on a New Life It’s never been so easy to give your things a new life thanks to
Montréal’s reuse network.

Photo : Métro
We’re all familiar with the sight of furniture sitting
by the curb waiting to be taken to its final desti-
nation: the landfill. It’s a common sight, especially
at moving time, but one that could easily be
avoided. You just have to know how.

Before putting your large objects (furniture, elec-


trical appliances, mattresses, etc.) out on the side-
walk, contact one of a variety of social economy
enterprises that are dedicated to recovering and
reselling them. Or you can contact one of the
shops in this sector. Some of them will even come
to your home to pick up your articles.

Here are two other possibilities: bring furniture


you no longer want to an ecocentre or have it
picked up by the City. More information about
this service is available at ville.montreal.qc.ca/

Eco-Fashion Reuse when
you Renovate
Reuse as you renovate—a good choice! There
are nine places in Montréal where you can drop
off your construction materials, fittings and fix-
tures, or buy used articles.

Most of these places don’t collect or sell large


construction materials due to lack of storage
space. But you can give or find doorknobs,
hinges, recycled paint, etc.

Éco-Réno is the only Montréal business that spe-


cializes in the recovery and resale of construc-
tion materials. They collect and sell everything
from doors, woodwork, bathtubs, fittings and
fixtures.

What’s
wrong with
this picture?
As the saying goes,
“There is a place for everything.”
Now there’s a place for used oil, filters
and oil containers.
SOGHU, Quebec’s used oil management association,
has put in place a recovery and reclamation system
for environmentally hazardous materials. With more
than 850 collection facilities across Quebec, it is now
easier than ever to recycle your used oil, filters and oil
containers (including aerosol containers)… there are
no more excuses for not respecting the environment.

These products should not


be thrown in the garbage,
but brought to one of SOGHU’s
many collection facilities.
