The Grounds Services is committed to creating a green, clean campus environment.
To contribute to McGill's Carbon Neutrality goals, Grounds has acquired a fully electric mid-sized work truck- the first of its kind to be purchased in Quebec! We are now in the final stages of obtaining regulatory permission; this EV will soon be visible across the campus.
Landscaping & sustainable horticulture
Grounds doesn't use any chemical pesticides or herbicides in their on-campus landscaping. Our unit composts the leaves from the hundreds of trees on campus every fall. As a result, we no longer purchase any outside compost or mulch. A project is now underway to further improve on this operation by using the Big Hanna machine, an in-vessel composter, to produce an even better quality oil amendment with campus green waste. Implementation is expected in Fall 2020.
The services provided by our Grounds department include:
- Maintenance of all exterior spaces on the downtown campus: green spaces, sidewalks and road, parking areas, McGill outdoor ice rink on west field
- Snow removal (sidewalks, pathways, terraces, emergency exits, exterior parking lots and roofs)
- Horticultural and landscaping services
- Retrieval of pallets
