The MRC Pontiac hosted two speakers from Enviro Educ-Action at the Pine Lodge in Bristol last Thursday, where attendees had the opportunity to learn how they can get onboard with composting, in preparation for a change to Quebec’s waste management laws in 2020.
Around 40 people attended, with representatives from many municipalities present, as the speakers explained the benefits of composting and working around the challenges of doing so in rural areas.
Getting right down to business, Chloé Gourde-Bureau, a coordinator with the group, explained that it will be illegal to bury organic waste in Quebec, come 2020. This means the MRC and municipalities need to take steps now in order to avoid a sudden shock come the transition. However, these new practices are being made law for good reason.
