Large non-recoverable items are not picked up with regular household garbage. There is four collections per year for oversized items.
The large items accepted during these collections are:
- acrylic or fibreglass bathtubs;
- sofas and armchairs;
- furniture not made of wood;
- linoleum, blinds, and carpets.
These large items will go directly to the landfill.
The large items must be placed at the curb between 7 p.m. the day before and 6:30 a.m. the morning of collection. You must put it out on the curb where it will not hamper pedestrian traffic.
Collectors can pick up waste materials between 7 a.m. and 8:30 p.m. If they still have not come after this time, please leave your bin at the curb and notify the Environment Management division at 450-466-3199 or at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your collaboration!
To dispose of other large items, you can go anytime to one of the ecocentres located in the Longueuil agglomeration, or consult the directory of recyclers.
Moreover, we strongly recommend that when you purchase a new appliance, you include a pick-up for your old appliance in the sales contract or have your contractor remove them.
