– Centralized sorting stations and removal of individual bins at CAE’s headquarters


CAE’s head office is located in Ville Saint-Laurent; it is a multi-use, one million square feet building that houses an assembly plant, engineering and support offices, as well as simulator test sites and two tenants. Nearly 4,000 people work there every day (permanent employees, contractors and customers) and generate waste. In 2015, the building management department decided to set up centralized waste stations instead of 8000 individual bins, these stations introducing sorting of compostable materials. This conference is the story of all stages of this implementation; from the pilot project launched in June 2016 to full deployment throughout the building in the years 2017-2018, including all the social acceptability issues of the project encountered in all communities of CAE.
