Garbage, recycling & composting

Collection of household waste:

Your household waste should be comprised of the remaining waste after the selective collection. This fraction of garbage must not contain recyclable and/or organic materials.

Collection of household waste takes place once a week, thus, on Thursdays.

General Instructions:

The household waste collection  is mechanized, therefore to ensure that your bin is emptied it is IMPORTANT to follow these rules:

  • Position your black bin at the curb: wheels and handles facing the house;
  • The collection is on Thursdays and it starts at 7:00 a.m.;
  • Nothing should be placed next to the bin and the lid must be closed;
  • Place the bin at the curb after 6:00 p.m. the night before the collection or before 7:00 a.m. the day of the collection.

Bulk waste collection:

When you wish to eliminate bulk items that can be reused, consider the following movement '' Pay it Forward'' by contacting an organization that helps people in need.

When your bulk waste cannot be reused, it should be forwarded to the LaSalle Ecocenter.

Bulky items that cannot be reused or recycled  should take the path of elimination.

The municipality has bulk waste collections on the following dates:
