In the past few weeks, following the commissioning of the new glass sorting and cleaning equipment, official inauguration ceremonies were held in three centres. The event on June 1 in Quebec City generated local and national media coverage. Last week, equipment was launched at EBI Environnement in St-Paul, outside Joliette, in the presence of David Heurtel, Minister of Sustainable Development, the Environment and the Fight Against Climate Change, who took the opportunity to support the Innovative Glass Works
plan and announce the creation of a follow-up committee for the pilot projects, which will be conducted over a 15-month period. Minister Heurtel also pledged major investments in the Away-from-Home Recovery program, which aims to fund recovery equipment in public spaces managed by municipalities.
Yesterday, the installations in the Grande-Rivière sorting centre in Gaspésie were inaugurated. At the event, local projects that integrate recycled glass were unveiled, including the mesmerizing Nova Lumina night walk in Chandler developed in collaboration with Moment Factory. This inauguration generated a good press coverage, including this excellent report (in French) to TVA.
