There are twelve green waste collections from spring to fall in both sectors at the same time.

Large items

There are four collections of large items per year.

Organic waste

Organic waste is collected every Wednesday. During winter, it is collected every two weeks.

In 2019, only single-family homes, buildings with 8 dwelling units or fewer, school, and municipal buildings will have access to the organic waste collection service.

Important!
Starting on May 1, a new contract for residual material collections will come into effect in Saint-Lambert. A few changes have been made to the schedule. To find out all the details and the dates of the various collections, consult the 2019 waste collection calendar.

Was your bin forgotten?

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 environnement@saint-lambert.ca. Thank you for your collaboration!

Ecocentres

You have free access to three ecocentres within the Longueuil agglomeration where you can dispose of various recoverable materials in an ecologically friendly manner, including some that may not be discarded in either the regular garbage or recyclables pick-ups: tires, wood furniture, construction equipment, air conditioners, refrigerators, hazardous household waste, electronic products, branches, peat edges, etc.

Directory of recyclers

The City of Saint-Lambert has created a list of places where you can properly dispose of or donate common household items (computers, cell phones, furniture, etc.) in an ecological way. 

Composters

Residents who would like to start composting at home may purchase a Soil Saver composter for $25 (maximum two composters per household). The composters are available while stocks last from the City Hall, located at 55 Argyle Avenue. If you have any questions, join the green squad at 450 466-3889, ext. 3199 or at environnement@saint-lambert.ca.
