Ecocentre and construction waste

The ecocentre allows citizens of the MRC of Vaudreuil-Soulanges to dispose of many residual materials that are refused in the regular collections in a simple and efficient manner.

If you need to get rid of an item that is refused in the bulk waste collection, it can probably be taken to the ecocentre or to a construction waste collector.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why does the City have to limit the materials accepted for bulk waste 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.

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.

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 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. Most construction waste can be recycled. This is why it is not collected with other bulky waste, which is disposed of in landfills. Citizens can use the Ecocentre for this waste.
