On 31 October Kanasetake Mohawk community celebrated the Grand Opening of their community Eco-Center, the Ratihontsanonhstats Kanasetake.
Eugene Nicolas, Environmental Project Manager, Mohawk Council of Kanasetake commented: “ This site was developed as part of the environmental program we are implementing to reduce illegal dumping and improving our control of waste and management. The site allows us to handle drop off in a very practical and efficient manner. The Community is very pleased, remarked its uniqueness, and its clean way of handling waste and recyclables. We are using the space under the modular system to store cards, electronics as well as other more valuable recyclables. The site is very successful and visited daily by many residents and general public since it opened.”
