The MRC de Roussillon is mandated by its 11 municipalities to coordinate waste collection and processing.
Your municipality oversees Christmas tree and branch pickup as well as drop-off locations like ecocentres : See your municipality’s website to learn more.
Labour shortages and supply issues are putting a strain on schedules, and collectors may experience some delays.
IMPORTANT | Never use plastic bags of any type, including biodegradable, compostable, or oxo-biodegradable. The treatment system can’t handle them because they take too long to decompose.
You have several options to dispose of other materials.
Thrift stores might take toys or other items that can still be used.
To find out how to dispose of other materials, including hazardous ones, see the Où ça va tool.
The MRC de Roussillon encourages citizens and businesses to reduce their use of single-use plastics and replace them with reusables. Disposable plastic water bottles, straws, and utensils are generally used once—then go on to contaminate the food chain for generations!
The MRC’s 11 municipalities have also banned all plastic bags regardless of thickness. The ban came into force on September 1, 2022. Don’t go out without your reusable bags!
