A week without trash cans for Cascades employees

    KINGSEY FALLS, QC, Oct. 19 /CNW Telbec/ - For the Semaine québécoise de
réduction des déchets (waste reduction week), which will be held on
October 19-26, Cascades has made a significant move by withdrawing individual
trash cans from its offices all across Québec. The company wants to raise the
awareness of its employees regarding the quantity of waste they generate every
day, as well as incite them to implement the 3R-R principle on a daily basis.
    Furthermore, employees who work in the production units in Kingsey Falls,
the birthplace of Cascades, will be visited during their lunch hour by the
mobile recycling team, spearheaded by the students of the Centre de formation
en entreprise et récupération (CFER) located in Victoriaville, who will advise
them on the best methods to adopt to reduce waste.
    Cascades is proud to be the largest paper collector in Canada. "We
believe it is important to have our employees contribute to the reduction of
our ecological footprint as well as maintain our leadership role with regards
to sustainable development", declared Alain Lemaire, President and Chief
Executive Officer.
    Cascades is proud to be associated with the 8th edition of the Semaine
québécoise de réduction des déchets (waste reduction week). For a third
consecutive year, Cascades will provide Action-Rebuts with Rolland Enviro100
paper, composed of 100% recycled fibres, to print their colourful posters.

    Founded in 1964, Cascades produces, converts and markets packaging and
tissue products composed mainly of recycled fibres. Cascades employs nearly
14,000 men and women who work in some 100 modern and flexible production units
located in North America and in Europe. Cascades' management philosophy, its
close to 45 years of experience in recycling, its continuous efforts in
research and development are strengths which enable the company to create
innovative products for its customers. The Cascades shares trade on the
