The Agglomeration of Montréal’s ecocentres are accessible year-round. Local ecocentres are held at for different occasions, on Saturdays in May, July, September and October, between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.

Ecocentres enable residents to dispose of many items in a simple and efficient manner, so that they can be reused, recycled or recovered. Ecocentres are a good way of managing residual materials, extending the life of objects and materials, and diverting them away from landfill sites. You can bring construction and electronic waste, tires, and any other items that cannot be recovered during regular, bulky items or hazardous household waste collections.

Local ecocentres

Dates: May 11, July 13, September 14 and October 19.

The collection takes place at the Public Works yard (50, avenue Terra-Cotta).

Document shredding

A document shredding service is available at the local ecocentre. All paper with or without staples and binders is accepted for shredding. Documents must have no clips, and plastic sheets and binders are not accepted. Shredding takes place on site. This service is available only to residents. It will not be offered for commercial use.

Compost and wood chips

Compost and wood chips are available at local ecocentres, depending on availability in spring and fall. We invite you to visit this page a few days before an ecocentre day to find out if compost will be distributed.
