Recycling

Recycling is picked up every Wednesday in all zones, except for Christmas Day and New Year's Day.

What is recyclable?

For an item to be recyclable, you must be able to answer "yes" to these two questions:

  • Is it made of paper, cardboard, plastic, glass or metal?
  • Is it a container, packaging or printed matter?

Consult this checklist produced by the MRC de Vaudreuil-Soulanges to find out which materials are recyclable and which are not.

Some items require special disposal and recovery (tires, appliances, electronics, etc.). Go to the Ecocentre Vaudreuil-Soulanges or contact a local recycler.

What happens to recycled materials?

As of January 2017, all recyclable materials in the MRC de Vaudreuil-Soulanges are sent to the Tricentris sorting centre in Lachute. That's 16,000 tons a year!

Visit the site of this non-profit organization to discover the journey taken by your recyclable materials and to find out what products they're used to make.

Instructions on the use of curbside bins

All trucks used for sorted waste collection are equipped with a mechanical arm to lift your 240- or 360-litre wheeled bins (the small blue 64-litre bins are no longer picked up). To make sure your bins are emptied, please follow all instructions regarding waste bins.

Placement

  • Bins must be placed 1 metre from the street (not in the street or on the sidewalk), wheels facing your house, after 8 p.m. the day before or before 7 a.m. on collection day. Note that trucks do not always come by at the same time. Be sure to put your bins away by 8 p.m. after pickup.
  • Bins must not obstruct snow removal or street cleaning.
  • The wheeled bins--blue for recycling and black for garbage--are the property of the City. Each has a serial number linked to a street address. They must not be exchanged between neighbours. Please write your address in the area provided.
  • Bins must be placed at least 30 cm apart and 1 m away from cars, buildings or other objects so they can be reached by the mechanical arm of the collection truck.
  • Bins should not be kept in the front yard between pickup days.

Bin placement – Multi-unit residential buildings

  • Bins must be placed in the driveway, not in the street or on the sidewalk.
  • In summer, they may be lined up at the edge of the property, next to the street.
  • In winter, to allow for snow removal, they must be lined up in the driveway, perpendicular to the street and all on the same side, with the wheels toward the building.

Failure to follow these instructions may result in your bin not being picked up and can also lead to fines.

Cleaning

Regular cleaning of curbside bins is strongly recommended, especially before they are to be repaired or replaced. 

If your bin is broken, please contact the Environment Division at 450-455-3371, option 1.

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. A number of violation notices were issued in 2016, and repeat offenders could be fined in 2017 .
