Guide to Proper Waste Sorting

The garbage we throw away will end up in a landfill. Landfill sites generate large quantities of greenhouse gases, which contribute to climate change. In fact, these sites are currently almost at maximum capacity.

When wondering how to dispose of certain items, many people simply toss them into the garbage without giving it a second thought. Yet when we sort properly, only 3% of waste materials should really go into the garbage.

By using the proper waste collection or service to dispose of our residual materials, we help reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill sites.

This guide tells you all you need to know about municipal waste collections and offers tips on how to discard your materials properly. Refer to it as needed!

For full details on collections (schedule, frequency, items accepted or refused, etc.), you can also consult the Waste Management section.
