Closure of the municipal ecocentre in 2020
The Sutton municipal ecocentre will close its doors in 2020. This decision has been taken because conditions required to ensure environmental and economic viability of the project were not met as part of the process to improve the regional ecocentre service. Essentially, the decision to close the Town of Sutton's ecocentre is based on the following considerations:
- The existence of two parallel services, regional (MRC) as regards and municipal, creates confusion as regards the nature of the recyclable materials accepted at each location;
- The objective of municipal recycling being profitable for the preservation of the environment was not met;
- In a context of scarcity of resources, it has become impossible for the Town to find the personnel necessary to provide this service;
- This is part of the policy of reducing costs relating to garbage collection.
In order to ensure the efficient recycling of eligible materials, the Sutton population will be able to continue to use the usual garbage collection services and the services provided by the ecocentre of the MRC of Brome-Missisquoi which are in the process of optimizing their centre (new layout of the site coming in 2020).
