Environment Day

All citizens of Grenville-sur-la-Rouge are invited to the 2018 Environment Day!

When?

Friday, May 18, from 2 pm to 7 pm

Where?

On the grounds of the City Hall, at 88, rue des Érables in Grenville-sur-la-Rouge

Distribution of free plants

Once again, as part of Tree and Forest Month, trees will be distributed free of charge by the Municipality, in collaboration with the Ministry of Forests, Wildlife and Parks (MFFP) and the 4-H Clubs of Quebec, to contribute to the restoration of our lakes’  and rivers’ shorelines, as well as to the embellishment of our territory.

In the same vein, native perennials will also be offered. All will be entitled to trees and ornamental plants, and riparian residents will also be able to leave with native plants adapted to shorelines environments. Note that these plants will be available in limited quantities, so first come, first served!

Well water analysis at discounted prices

The H2Lab laboratory, accredited by the Quebec government, will be on site to answer all your questions regarding the quality of drinking water and to offer a complete analysis of your well water at discounted prices:

  • Bacteriological test: $ 40 (taxes included)
  • Aesthetic test: $ 80 (taxes included)
  • Combo (bacteriological and aesthetic): $ 115 (taxes included)

Sterile bottles are already available at City Hall and will be available on site during the Environment Day. We remind you that it is strongly recommended to have your well water tested once a year to ensure that its consumption is safe for your health and that of your loved ones.

Drawing of domestic composters

Ready to compost? A draw of domestic composters will occur during the day. Come enter your name to get a chance to win yours!

Workshop on the sorting of residual materials

The organization Tricentris will also be on site to allow you to test your skills in the sorting of recyclable materials! You will also be able to learn more about the management of residual materials.

Much more!

Information will be available on a variety of other environmental topics, such as shorelines and water bodies protection, the Waste Management Plan, battery recycling and home composting, the residential septic tank emptying program and Quebec’s drinking water conservation strategy. It is therefore the perfect opportunity for you to come and exchange and learn about the topics that are important to you about the environment!

We will be waiting for you !
