Eco-Humanitarian Management of Eviction-Related Materials

SOCENV’s mission statement includes residual materials reduction and poverty alleviation in the Borough of Côte-des-Neiges—Notre-Dame-de-Grâce.

Through this project, SOCENV is offering to citizens evicted from their appartment by a Régie order a free service: moving their belongings and storing them temporarily (2 months), giving them the opportunity to look for a new appartment. This eco-humanitarian service allows evicted citizens to keep their belongings instead of abandoning them in the public domain, in case they have nowhere to store them just after the eviction.

If nobody comes to reclaim the stored belongings, those are sorted and then recycled through the appropriate channel, redistributed to poor residents or thrown away as last resort.
