Major Cleanup of Illegal Dump in Beauport: Items thrown into nature without any inconvenience

Blankets, a car seat, a paint pan, a construction canvas: The list of items found in an illegal dump in Beauport Thursday by Previan employees participating in a cleanup program was startling.

Two sites for this major cleaning operation are located near Chemin du Lac-des-Roches and Place Belavens. They are recognized by the City of Quebec and the Poornat Institute. In three hours, no less than 15 tons of waste was collected.



According to a discovery made by Previan employees, this remaining mattress or box spring has been around for a long time. From left to right: Etienne Drouin-Provençal, Réjean Drolet, Pierre-Hugues Allard and Véronique Chayer.

“These sites need a little love. Maybe we think there is an Ecocenter very far away and sometimes when we go to take our things it is too far away,” said Véronique Chayer, director of communications at Previan, a high-tech company.

According to the Poornat Institute, which monitored the activity, “the severity of illegal dumping is widespread across America and across the planet.” For example, the average lifespan of a plastic bag is 400 to 500 years and it can reach up to 1000 years for a plastic bottle.
