The City of Ma­gog was happy to an­nounce that the 2015 edi­tion of the Fete des neiges de Ma­gog is a fi­nal­ist in the Les Vi­vats con­test for the cat­e­gory of waste man­age­ment. “We stood out for the high level of eco-re­spon­si­bil­ity at­tained dur­ing the Fete des neiges de Ma­gog. Nine­tysix % of the waste gen­er­ated over the two week­ends of the event was di­verted from the land­fill site when our ob­jec­tive was 75%,” said El­yse Me­nard, en­vi­ron­ment co­or­di­na­tor with the city. Jury mem­bers found the rate ex­cep­tional for an out­door event.

The city will learn on April 5th if it has won the award. Un­til then, it thanks all those who helped in the suc­cess. “Th­ese re­sults were ob­tained be­cause of the par­tic­i­pa­tion of or­ga­niz­ers and mu­nic­i­pal em­ploy­ees, part­ners of the fes­ti­val, vol­un­teers and, of course, the par­tic­i­pants,” said Ms. Me­nard.
