Aeroports of Montreal (ADM) is adopting a new directive aimed at gradually eliminating its use of single-use plastic.
Since March 1, airport kitchens have been gradually removing utensils, containers food, cups and single-use bags.
The directive is part of ADM’s goal of adopting zero waste operations by 2030. By 2025, the airport aims to recover 70% of its waste.
“It’s obviously a transition requiring adaptation, but the mobilization of our airport community around this file is unequivocal”, underlines Philippe Stas, vice-president services and commercial operations of ADM.
Remember that several uses of single-use plastics were banned in food stores and restaurants in Montreal on March 28th.
