Accepted/not accepted items

Sending large items to landfill should be a last resort. For this reason, only the following items are accepted:

  • Sinks
  • Showers
  • Toilets
  • Bathtubs
  • Furniture and mattresses

The following items are not accepted and will not be collected:

  • Cold appliances (refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners, etc.)
  • Other home appliances (microwave ovens, vacuum cleaners, washers, dryers, stoves, dishwashers, etc.)
  • IT and communication technologies waste (computers, TVs, etc.)

What to do with non-accepted items

Many of the items not accepted for collection may be taken to the Écocentre Vaudreuil-Soulanges.

In addition, many consumer products, building materials, furniture, etc. can be recovered rather than sent to landfill. See the recycling directory to find recyclers in the region.

Construction Waste

Debris from construction, renovation and demolition (CRD) makes up 40% of all waste produced in Québec. According to government data, a major effort is needed in Vaudreuil-Dorion.

Building a new home? Renovating your old one?

  • When you rent a container, ask that it be sent to a sorting centre once the work is done.
  • Dispose of your CRD waste at the ecocentre.

Recovery of CRD waste is mandatory under municipal by-laws in effect since January 1, 2013.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why are only certain types of large items now accepted for curbside collection?

These changes have been made for environmental reasons and to comply with the standards and policies established by the Québec government. In March 2011, the provincial government adopted the Québec Residual Materials Management Policy, which aims to create a waste-free society by encouraging more environmentally friendly habits and best practices in consumption and waste management.

The MDDEP (Québec department of sustainable development, environment and parks) is counting on the collaboration of municipalities and MRCs in implementing this policy and helping to achieve its objectives. The City of Vaudreuil-Dorion makes every effort to conform to the residual materials management plans adopted by the MRC de Vaudreuil-Soulanges and the Montréal metropolitan community.

Is any money saved by diverting large items from landfill?

The City must rein in the costs of residual materials management; this includes limiting landfill, which is subject to a government surcharge. For each ton of large items sent to landfill, the City pays disposal costs and charges. These amount to about $72 a ton.

When you cut down on the amount of waste you send to landfill, you not only help reduce our community's environmental footprint, but you also reduce the costs we incur for waste disposal.

Why are cold appliances no longer accepted?

This change is in response to federal and provincial regulations regarding halocarbons. It's also motivated by environmental concerns. Cold appliances (refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners, etc.) that are not properly managed or recovered emit halocarbons that deplete the stratospheric ozone layer and act as greenhouse gases (GHGs). When these appliances are brought to the Ecocentre, they're redirected to different types of valorization facilities which ensure maximum environmental benefit.

Why is construction debris not picked up?

The Government of Québec has set aggressive targets for reducing the amount of waste sent to landfill. The City's scores with regard to construction debris indicate that significant effort is needed. Under City by-laws adopted in January 2013, recycling of this waste is mandatory. Under the Québec Residual Materials Management Policy and the related 2011–2015 action plan, lumber has not been allowed in landfills since January 1, 2014.
