Waste Management Plan (WMP) (Plan de gestion des matières résiduelles (PGMR))

In response to the large quantities of waste, and the environmental impacts associated with the disposal and forecast of the rarity of certain raw resources, waste management is a budding field.Mise à jour du PGMR

Update of the PGMR

Since the drafting of the first PGMR, in 2006, the portrait of waste management has changed mostly due to the closure of trench sites and landfill sites located on the territory of the MRC. The services offered by municipalities have developed and improved, therefore recycling and awareness of the importance of recuperating waste increases each year.

All PGMRs adopted by an MRC or a city, with the competence of an MRC, must update it every five years. The MRC de La Vallée-de-la-Gatineau officially commenced reviewing its PGMR in May 2014. The updated draft, the 2016-2020 PGMR was adopted by the MRC’s council in October 2015 and was presented at the public consultations on February 8 and 11, 2016. Then the PGMR Project was submitted to the ministre du Développement durable, de l’Environnement de la Lutte contre les Changements climatiques on April 28, 2016, which as disposed of 120 days to analyze the document.

A Notice of non-compliance was received on June 22, 2016. The draft PGMR was amended in response to the notice. This last amended version was adopted by regulation at the council of the MRCVG of October 18, 2016, thus repealing the 2006 PGMR.

Summary of the new PGMR

As prescribed by the Loi sur la Qualité de l'Environnement (LQE), the PGMR surveys the planning territory by describing its geography, demography and socio-economic profile. Responsibilities in terms of waste management are defined and the main actors are listed.

A detailed diagnosis of the materials generated and processed in 2014 is then presented in relation to the government objectives and those determined by the MRC. These are equivalent or more demanding than those described in the government's 2011-2015 action plan.

Objectives stem from 16 guidelines and 33 actions, in particular studies for the construction of a second ecocentre, the introduction of a means of treating organic matter and a third-track collection, and the standardization of selective collection by The use of the rolling bin in all municipalities. The actions are described in detailed and practical sheets.

The PGMR is therefore a comprehensive and concrete document enabling everyone to fully understand the different residual materials management methods and the steps to be taken in the LRGM. All local municipalities have an obligation to comply within 12 months of its adoption.

The main objective of this policy is to "Eliminate only one residual material in Quebec: the ultimate residue", indicating a desire to end the waste of resources.

Besides that, the “Politique” (Quebec policy) ordered a landfill ban on cardboard in 2013, wood in 2014 and organic matter in 2020. In 2013, the Ministère du Développement durable, de l’Environnement, de la Faune et des Parcs (MDDEFP) (today known as the Ministère du Développement durable, de l’Environnement et de la Lutte contre les Changements climatiques (MDDELCC) unveiled guidelines to support the MRCs or the cities concerned, in updating their PGMR.
