The next bulky items collection will be on september 8, 2020.

The materials accepted in the collection of bulky items are:

  • Furniture, mattresses, appliances
  • Sanitary appliance (shower, bath, toilet, sink)

Where's it going?

Green Bin, Blue Bin or Composting?

Collection Points for Batteries

In addition, the Municipality now has three collection points for the recycling of your batteries:

  • At the Calumet sector library: 435 rue Principale.
  • At the Pointe-au-Chêne sector library: 2710A, Route 148
  • At the Town Hall: 88 rue des Érables

Green Bin, Blue Bin or Composting?

In the fight against climate change, reducing the amount of waste that ends up in landfills can have a significant impact. Indeed, the waste sector produced 5.5% of total GHG emissions in Québec in 2012, ie 4.3 Mt eq. CO2, mainly as CH4 and N2O.[1]


The Municipality is therefore looking to give you the tools to reduce the amount of materials that end up in garbage, and encourage you to recycle and compost.

So here is a list of materials you can already stop putting in the green bin!

Matières recyclables (bac bleu) :

  • Paper (newspapers, printed matter, envelopes, paper, etc.)
  • Cardboard boxes (cardboard boxes, cardboard boxes, egg cartons, milk cartons, juice boxes, etc.)
  • Plastic (any object identified by an arrow triangle with the number 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 7, plugs, plastics bags that stretch)
  • Glass (bottles or food containers)
  • Metal (cans, non-stained aluminum foil, stoppers, canes, pie plates, aluminum cooking dishes, etc.)

Compostable materials (if you have a home composter):

  • Green or damp matter (leftover fruits and vegetables, eggshells, fresh grass clippings)
  • Brown or dry matter (dried and dried leaves, hay, coffee grounds (including filters) and tea bags, napkins, pasta, kernels, rice, bread, walnut husks)

For effective composting, it is recommended to always maintain a proportion of 1/3 green matter and 2/3 brown material in your compost pile.

For more advice on recycling and domestic composting, we invite you to consult a brochure produced by CRE Laurentides which you will find in an attached file.
