Step of the procedure /
Decision and authorization
The project consists of developing a fenced site measuring approximately 5,000 m2 of gravel surface. The vehicles, which would be previously decontaminated at the municipal garage, would then be stored there to make them available to residents of the Northern Village, particularly for spare parts. Vehicles that have no more parts available can then be compacted and stacked on site for eventual recovery. Compaction activities will not take place on site until metal recovery service is available in Quaqtaq.
