– Influence of waste treatment scales in the context of the agglomeration of Montreal


As part of its PDGMR, the City of Montréal wants to reduce, in the specific context of the agglomeration, the economic and environmental costs related to the export of garbage over long distances. This reduction involves reducing the transport distances of the materials by respecting the built environment according to the density and types of housing. We will discuss the impact of centralizing the treatment of materials on the agglomeration of Montréal according to the variation of costs and quantities to be treated. Methods to adapt our understanding of the management of residual materials in a territory according to its structure and distances to travel, develop in partnership with the CRVMR, will also be discussed.
