Saint-Anicet moves ahead on plan to open ecocentre

The municipality of Saint-Anicet has taken the initial steps towards the installation of an ecocentre at the site of the municipal garage.

During the regular council meeting on April 12, a resolution was adopted to initiate the process. Land surveyor Pierre Meilleur was mandated to begin drawing up the plans, which must include two lots located at the site of the garage that have already been authorized for this use by the Commission de protection du territoire agricole (CPTAQ).

The council considers this project to be a priority and are in the process of verifying the costs associated with the endeavour. “We are currently gathering information and will submit a funding request to Recyc-Québec as part of the financial assistance program aimed at optimizing Quebec’s network of ecocentres,” says Saint-Anicet director general, Denis Lévesque.

The ecocentre is in line with a number of environmental projects taken on by the municipality, including a recent agreement with AgriRÉCUP to recover agricultural plastics. “Our actions correspond with the Quebec Residual Materials Management Policy, action plan 2019-2024,” says mayor Gino Moretti.

Councillor Sylvie Tourangeau says she holds the ecocentre project close to her heart. She has thanked her colleagues for supporting her in this process.

The council is open to offering use of the ecocentre to neighbouring municipalities.
