PSNM Makes Waste-Sorting a Priority

Return to news

Since the beginning of the 2022 school year, Pensionnat Saint-Nom-de-Marie (PSNM) has focused on the sorting of waste materials. This institution is one of about thirty pioneering schools in Quebec that have undertaken this process.

Committed to a green and sustainable transformation since 2021, PSNM has undertaken actions to further decrease the volume of products deposited in the trash and to reduce the contamination rate of composted and recycled materials.

Presentations to students and staff members, waste sorting competitions and activities to develop a reduction and recycling approach, have been held since the beginning of the school year. Among the activities, we should mention the bicycle collection in collaboration with the Cyclo Nord-Sud organization and the collective wardrobe project that promotes buying second-hand clothes.
