What is an RMMP and why does it need revising?

Under the Environment Quality Act, regional county municipalities (MRCs in the French acronym) are responsible for devising a plan for residual materials management in their region. The current RMMP must be revised to comply with this obligation.

The goal of the RMMP is to meet the objectives of the Québec Residual Materials Management Policy and the Plan d'action 2019–2024, the most fundamental goal being to ensure that only final waste is sent to landfills.

Joining in

The RMMP is being revised through a participatory process that includes the public, the 21 municipalities and various local stakeholders. This consultation provides an opportunity to highlight issues and challenges facing waste management in the region and how best to address them.

Online survey

The survey is now closed. The purpose of this survey was to better understand how residents and industrial, commercial and institutional (ICI) organizations manage their waste. Your input and opinions will help us develop a waste management plan for our region that is tailored to your needs.
