The accessibility mode increases the contrast for people with visual problems.


Reuse

Just because an item isn’t any use to you anymore doesn’t mean it can’t be of use to someone else! Before throwing something out, think how it might be reused.

This way, you’ll avoid sending many items to the landfill and you’ll give them a second life in their current form (donations to thrift shops or organizations that help disadvantaged families, etc.) or transformed into a new product (carpets made of recycled tires, etc.).

Recyclers directory

The City of Saint-Lambert has created a list of places where you can properly dispose of or donate common household items in an environmentally friendly way!

Garage sales 

Garage sales are a fun way to give used articles a second life. Items that are bought don’t end up in the garbage can.

To hold a garage sale, you must obtain a permit from the Urban Planning, Permits and Inspection Department at a cost of $20 (limit of one a year). Sales can be held on Saturdays only, between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m., but can be postponed to the next day in the event of rain.

Print the application for a garage sale permit (in French only). Bring the completed form to the Urban Planning, Permits and Inspection Department to obtain your permit. Certain fees apply.

Community-wide garage sale

A city-wide garage sale is held over one weekend every spring in June. It’s the perfect opportunity to find bargains and chat with neighbours by either making the rounds of the sales or organizing your own. On that weekend, a permit is not required. Check the calendar to know this year’s date.
