ANDREW DUFFIELD

Director of Sustainable Development, City of Beaconsfield

Andrew Duffield is a civil engineer with a Master’s in Environmental engineering on soil remediation. He worked as a municipal engineer at the City of Westmount and then as Director of Public Works at the Town of Baie-D’Urfé. Since taking office as Director of Public Works at the City of Beaconsfield in 2013, Mr. Duffield was integral to the implementation of the Waste Reduction Strategy and the Smart garbage collection system. Mr. Duffield was recently named to the position of Director of Sustainable Development to develop various projects associated with climate change resiliency as well as environmentally responsible development.

As part of the City of Beaconsfield’s Waste reduction strategy developed with and for residents, a new garbage collection system was implemented that enables residents to control their cost as a function of their efforts to reduce what they send to landfill. For the purposes of an incentive tariff, the system records the number of pick-ups for each property using “Smart” garbage bins equipped with transponders. The benefits of the smart collection include:

– Better sorting of what is generated and increased recycling of materials other than garbage
– Important savings which allows the city to offer more services while maintaining global waste management costs
– An equitable and flexible approach based on the real use of the service that permits residents to become actors of change
