Do you want to reduce the size of your garbage can, one step at a time?

Saint-Laurent is calling on its population to find motivated families who will take up the Zero Waste Challenge.

The Zero Waste Citizen Challenge will be spread over a period of 6 months. During this period, you will have access to over 20 hours of content on an online platform (in French).

Workshops, conferences, videos, individual and group coaching will help you progress at your own pace. In addition, a support forum will allow you to exchange with other participants from Saint-Laurent.

The Challenge is free, but places are limited. A total of 70 households will be selected from the four participating boroughs. No prerequisites other than motivation are required!

Sign up now!

Contrary to what was announced in the Bulletin de Saint-Laurent Spring 2023 , the deadline for registration is March 30 at 5:00 p.m. and not March 31. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Deadline to register: March 30, 2023 at 5 p.m.

A challenge inspired by the 5

Faced with the climate emergency, it is necessary to significantly reduce the amount of material sent to landfill sites, which produce methane gas responsible for greenhouse gases every year. The approach at the heart of the Zero Waste Citizen Challenge is inspired by the 5Rs: “Rethink, Refuse, Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.” Among other things, you will learn how to put your garbage can on a diet, make your own cosmetics and household products, demystify recycling, thwart obsolescence and develop responsible consumption reflexes. Let’s bet that in addition to reducing your amount of waste, you’ll save some money! 

The Zero Waste Citizen Challenge is an initiative of the Incita Cooperative. It will be deployed throughout Quebec in 2023.

Saint-Laurent Climate Emergency Plan

This initiative is in line with Objective 2 - Encourage the population to reduce collective greenhouse gas emissions of the Saint-Laurent Climate Emergency Plan 2021-2030.
