Can Dawson recycle masks?
Dawson is distributing single-use procedural masks to everyone who enters the building. These masks have been proven to provide effective protection from COVID. Requests to recycle the masks have been considered.
The Sustainability Office, in collaboration with Facilities Management, has been reviewing recycling proposals by various companies. For the moment, we, like nearly all CEGEPs involved in a discussion, have not found a proven viable method to recycle the masks.
We are confident that directing masks towards landfill with our regular garbage is the least environmentally damaging option when considering cost, risk of exposure to pathogens, travel of the masks to recyclers, traceability, as well as the energy and effort involved in the imperfect processes, which lead to storage, incineration or recycled plastic.
Happy Holidays and building access over the festive season
Happy Holidays to all our employees and students! We hope that everyone enjoys this time of year, especially the fresh start and promise of a New Year! Take care and stay safe.
