Low council votes down compost contract

Garbage, recycling contracts awarded


At the first meeting of its mandate, the new Low council voted against a compost collection and transportation contract, but in favour of a more expensive garbage and recycling service.


During the Nov. 15 Low council meeting, councillors Maureen McEvoy, Luc Thivierge, Lee Angus, and Ghyslain Robert voted against awarding a $96,399 compost collection and transportation contract to Montreal-based waste collection company Location Martin-Lalonde Inc. Two of the four Low residents in the crowd applauded when the compost contract was voted down.
