TIRU wins a new sorting centre in Montreal!

TIRU's Canadian subsidiary won a design-build and operate contract for a 5th sorting centre in Canada!

A 5th Canadian sorting centre for TIRU

After Montreal, Châteauguay, Saint-Hubert and Saguenay, TIRU will operate the future sorting centre in Lachine (western sector of Montreal). But before exploiting it, it must be designed and built!

An 11 year global design, construction, operation and maintenance contract

The future sorting centre designed by La compagnie de recyclage de papiers MD (MD Paper Recycling Company - one of TIRU's subsidiaries in Canada) will be ready in 2019. 

It will treat 50% of Montreal's recyclable waste, or 75,000 tonnes of input material per year. The operation is planned for 5 years, with two options of 3 years each, i.e. 11 years in total.

A response to the territory's high environmental expectations

The construction of a new sorting centre in Montreal's west end is one more step towards increasing the recycling rate for paper, cardboard, glass, plastic and metal and achieving the goal of recovering 70% of these materials.

It should make it possible to better meet the city's needs in terms of waste management, while reducing the distance of transport of materials from the west.

A technology unique in North America

From the design phase of the sorting centre, TIRU will integrate a complete glass sorting and cleaning system to give it a second life in a multitude of applications.

LEED GOLD certification in compliance with the 2016-2020 Montreal Sustainable Policy

TIRU will be responsible for designing a high-performance, quality building that respects the principles of sustainable development in the Montréal metropolis.

Other projects also scheduled for this autumn in Canada: two calls for tenders to design, build, operate and maintain composting plants!
