Oversized items collection
See calendar for container dates. A collection service is also offered by the municipality. Please contact the municipal inspector at 819-425-8154 to make the appropriate arrangements.
Acceptable oversized garbage items are:
Home and garden furniture: table, chair, sofa, desk, bed, mattress, box spring. Large appliances that DO NOT use refrigerants: stove, dish-washer, washer, dryer, water-heater.
A new ecocentre has opened its doors on August 27, 2012, at 60 chemin de Brébeuf. The entrance is located between the municipal garage and the firehouse. The ecocentre is a collection center which accepts certain items refused during regular garbage collection, such as construction materials, furniture, mattreses, household hazardous wastes (HHW), recyclable materials, tires, electronics and appliances, to insure that everything is properly disposed of and to reduce the amount of garbage in landfills.
Who can use the ecocentre?
The ecocentre is a free service offered to the residents of the MRC des Laurentides. The maximum amount of items accepted per visit is equivalent to a 4′ x 8′ x 2′ trailer (64 square feet). For larger amounts, residents and building contractors are invited to visit the private dry material disposal site. No heavy vehicules will be allowed on-site.
Before going to the ecocentre, please sort your items, as they will have to be dropped in the appropriate bins (wood, shingles, etc.). When entering the ecocentre, an employee will verify your proof of residence, the amount of items you are bringing and if they are acceptable. You will be accompanied inside and directed to the appropriate bins.
Please note that the employees are not obligated help the residents unload their items.
