Ecocentres welcome millionth visitor
The City of Sherbrooke is extremely pleased to announce that its ecocentres have reached the milestone of one million visitors since their opening.
This highly symbolic number was achieved when Alexy Gabriel showed up at the Rose-cohen Ecocentre on Monday, October 23rd, at the beginning of Quebec Waste Reduction Week. To mark the event, the millionth visitor received two gift certificates totaling $200 from two stores in Sherbrooke, Ecoloboutique and Quincaillerie Parent.
The City of Sherbrooke inaugurated the Michel-ledoux Ecocentre, at 1000 Léon-trépanier St., in 2003. Three years later, the Rose-cohen Ecocentre opened at 365 Pépin St, so that the east and west of Sherbrooke territory could be served fairly.
Thanks to the participation of Sherbrooke residents, more than 115,000 tons of materials have been valorized through these two ecocentres since their opening. Such tonnage is equivalent to the quantity of materials buried by the City of Sherbrooke over four years.
