Eco-Centre and Resource Recovery Station Project
Step of the procedure /
The purpose of the project is to establish a first eco-centre and resource recovery station in a community in Nunavik to develop a safe and accessible place for residents, institutions, businesses and industries to bring hazardous and bulky materials that are refused in regular waste collection.
The eco-centre is a transfer station for waste that is not accepted in regular garbage. These materials would be sorted at the eco-centre to redirect them according to the indicated management method.
The resource recovery station promotes reuse and repurposing. Citizens and organizations can bring in any residential objects that are in good or slightly damaged condition. Some parts or objects will come from the eco-centre. All these objects will then be made available to the general public. Household appliances, furniture, tools, sports equipment, car parts, construction materials, etc. will all be found there.
