Delay in the waste collections
Please note that in the current context (of COVID-19), the contractor that provides the City with waste collection services is doing everything possible to ensure that the waste materials placed at the curb are collected according to the regular schedule. However, the company is encountering increasing challenges due to a higher rate of absenteeism among its employees and those that come from employment agencies. In addition to this, it is facing extended delays in repairing its trucks. All this has affected the collection service in recent weeks. Further exacerbating the situation is a marked increase in residential tonnage.
We thank residents for their understanding, and will keep you informed as the situation evolves, as always.
If your waste is not picked up, we invite you to leave your bins at the curb and, if you wish, to also contact the Info-Environnement line at 450-466-3199 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Household waste management involves several components including household garbage, recyclables, green waste, and hazardous household waste.

For industrial, commercial, and institutional buildings, garbage is collected once a week year-round.
Recyclable materials are collected every second Thursday.
For buildings with 9 dwelling units or more, and for industrial, commercial and institutional buildings, recycling materials are collected once a week.
There are twelve green waste collections from spring to fall in both sectors at the same time.
There are four collections of large items per year.
Organic waste is collected every Wednesday. During winter, from December 6, 2019 to April 1, 2020, it is collected every two weeks.
For the moment, only single-family homes, buildings with 8 dwelling units or fewer, school, and municipal buildings will have access to the organic waste collection service.

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.
