Protecting the environment starts at home!
In Quebec, nearly 60% of waste is organic matter which could be easily recuperated. Composting keeps inedible food scraps and other items soiled with food out of landfills, promotes soil health, and reduces greenhouse gas emissions.
Since 2010, the City has been committed to implementing this program with the support of Westmount’s residents. In 2019 alone, the City diverted 567.92 metric tons of food waste from landfills.
