Collections

Use your household garbage container properly

It is recommended that garbage be placed in rigid plastic or metal containers with a lid to avoid visiting wildlife. You can put it out on the curb where it will not hamper pedestrian traffic the evening before, after 7 p.m. 

Since it is manually lifted by garbage collectors, the capacity of the garbage can be limited to 100 liters.

The maximum allowable allowance for the rolling bin is 360 liters.

Maximum weight is limited to 25 kg.

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!

Prohibited in the regular waste 

Some items are not accepted in the household garbage collection:

Large items

All large waste and objects such as furniture, mattresses, carpets, etc., are not picked up with the regular household garbage. There is four collections per year for those oversized items. 

Construction waste

You may not place construction, renovation, and demolition waste such as lumber, ceramic, toilets, etc., out with the regular waste. You must bring these items to an ecocentre or have your contractor remove them.

Halocarbon-containing appliances

Halocarbon-containing appliances that are harmful to the environment, such as refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners, dehumidifiers, etc., are not picked up with the regular household garbage. 

You must bring your halocarbon-containing appliances to an ecocentre or consult the Directory of recyclers to find a place where you can properly dispose these items. Moreover, we strongly recommend that when you purchase a new appliance, you include a pick-up for your old appliance in the sales contract.  

Hazardous household waste

We ask that you bring your hazardous household waste (HHW) to an ecocentre, where it is accepted year round. Products such as paint, solvents, oils, pesticides, etc. are harmful to the environment and to human health if they are not properly disposed of.

You can also take advantage of the HHW collection that’s organized each fall by the City. Check the calendar to know this year’s date.

Dispose of used batteries, printer cartridges, and cell phones in the recycling containers available at City Hall, the library, the recreation centre, and the Public Works Office.
