The MRC of Bonaventure and Avignon equipped themselves in 2015 with a management plan for residual materials. (PGMR) This plan reports the waste, recyclables and organic materials, construction, renovation and demolition materials, dangerous domestic residues etc.., products that are produced in both MRCS. It also demonstrates what target we should reach for these residuals, and as well, present a five year program to help realize the target and budget.
The Environmental Quality Act demands that a plan, be produced every five years by the regional municipalities of the county. The PGMR must be in accordance with the Political Action Plan of Quebec in the matter of residual wastes.
Furthermore, to reduce the tonnage of residual waste, to maximize the life of the waste site (LET) and to mange efficiently the waste received, to obtain the targets projected, to maximize the grants received annually by the municipalities. These amounts re-invested in the management plan for residual wastes, in informing and educating the population of how the waste site is managed and letting the population know of the targets established by the PGMR.
