– Incentives in Gatineau: How to evaluate their performance?


With the ban on the burial of organic matter and the objective of reducing the amount of garbage generated by 45%, the City of Gatineau is putting in place several incentives. What are these measures and how are the performance measured? This presentation answers these questions and takes place in two parts. The first part presents the various incentives that exist, and application examples focused on what the City of Gatineau is putting in place. The second part presents a methodology to be applied to evaluate the performance of the implementation of incentives within municipalities. The purpose of this presentation is to illustrate how the implementation of incentives can influence the generation of the waste stream.

Through its partnership with the CRVMR, the City of Gatineau uses the methodology developed to be able to evaluate the effectiveness of the implementation of incentives.
