Waste reduction week, MontrealEvents in Montreal for Waste Reduction Week, October 15-21:

  • On October 15th, the Coop Maison Verte is offering a workshop that will show you how to make your own household cleaning products. This workshop serves to emphasis Quebec’s official waste reduction week and provides another way for you to save money and reduce your consumption.
  • Sunday, October 21 from 10:00am to 2:00pm (Coop la Maison verte): Used bicycle collection and bicycle mechanics workshop
  • Cyclo Nord-Sud is collecting used bikes to donate to disadvantaged communities in developing countries in order to promote development and combat poverty. Donate your surplus bicycles (20 inches and higher, in a repairable state) to the 4th annual bike collection happening at the Coop La Maison Verte and give your old bike a second life! A donation of $15 per bike is required in order to allow Cyclo Nord-Sud to cover a part of the associated recuperation costs (transport, storage, etc.). In exchange, you’ll receive a tax receipt for the value of your bike and your $15 donation. In light of Quebec’s official waste reduction week, a bike mechanics workshop will be offered simultaneously (free, bring your own bike).
