Recycling Depot move to be part of major Waste Management project


The Mohawk Council of Kahnawà:ke (MCK) would like to inform Kahnawa’kehró:non that a major waste management project has received unanimous approval by Chief & Council.

The ‘Waste Management Project Charter, Phase 1: Recycling’ was developed to improve efficiency in regard to waste management and recycling operations within the community. Start-up costs will total approximately $600,000 and will be offset by accumulated programming dollars ($330,000), leaving a total appropriation of $270,000 from MCK reserves.  It is estimated that the project will save approximately $2.2 million over the next fourteen years.

As part of the project, the Recycling Depot will be relocated to the area near the Transfer Depot along the St. Lawrence Seaway. Additionally, a more suitable new vehicle will be purchased for the Recycling program to replace the older pick-up trucks that have been in use for many years.

“We are committed to being more efficient in all of our operations,” said Environment Portfolio Chief Clinton Phillips. “Our team has worked hard to create a plan that will allow us to not only save money, but is good news for the people who live next to the current Recycling Depot.”

The formal approval was given at this past Monday’s Council meeting.
