Three new contracts for waste collection specialist Derichebourg Canada Environment
Derichebourg Canada Environment continues expanding its presence in Montreal as it was recently awarded two new recycling collection contracts with the L'Île-Bizard-Sainte-Geneviève and Le Sud-Ouest boroughs. This is the family company's second contract in Le Sud-Ouest, as it has been collecting food waste there since May 2016. Both contracts will take effect on 1st April, 2017.
"Derichebourg Canada Environment is pleased with these partnerships, which will allow our company to continue expanding its presence in the metropolitan area," says Stanislas Le Moine, Derichebourg Canada Environment's development manager for North America. "We now have eight contracts on the island of Montreal for a total of 230,000 doors. This is another step on the way to achieving our goal to create more than 500 jobs in Quebec over the next five years."
Since its arrival in Quebec, the company that established its North American headquarters in Montreal in December 2015 has been awarded contracts for the boroughs of Rosemont-La Petite-Patrie, Côte-des-Neiges-Notre Dame de-Grâce, Ahuntsic-Cartierville, Le Sud-Ouest, Verdun and Villeray-Saint-Michel-Parc-Extension in addition to the cities of Brossard and Gatineau.
Derichebourg Canada Environment was also awarded the contract to collect recyclable materials in Longueuil's Greenfield Park borough. Operations in this borough began in November 2016.
In a perspective of sustainable development, the company recently announced a partnership with Montreal-based Effenco, whose innovative Start-Stop technology stops a truck's engine as soon as it stops moving while keeping its accessories and equipment, such as the bin lifter, operational. This technology reduces the greenhouse gas emissions of Derichebourg Canada Environment's trucks by approximately 30%.
