Changes to your collections in 2024

Following the adoption of our Strategic Plan, the City of Pointe-Claire is implementing several initiatives to reach its objectives for our community’s ecological transition. This year, you will notice some changes to our collections, in an effort to reduce our ecological footprint and facilitate collection operations.  

Waste collection guide and calendar for 2024-2025  

A printed waste collection guide will be delivered to all Pointe-Claire residences by Canada Post during the coming week. At the centre of the guide, there is a detachable calendar that you may display on your fridge. A digital version of the guide and calendar will also be available on the City’s website.  

The guide is filled with information on the various collections, including instructions to be followed, the proper bins to use, as well as collection times and dates.  

Don’t forget to drop by your community mailbox over the next few days to pick up the new edition of the Waste Collection Guide and collections calendar! 

 Collection of recyclables 

Starting April 1, recyclables will be collected on Thursdays while organic waste will continue to be collected on Mondays. Having these collections on two separate days will help make the service more efficient and the schedule easier to follow.  

 Still wondering if an item can be placed in the recycling bin? It’s simple: if it’s a container, packaging or printed material, it can be put in the bin. For more details regarding accepted materials, consult the recyclable materials collection page on the City’s website.  


Pointe-Claire citizens have access to the Agglomeration of Montréal’s ecocentres. The closest ones are located in LaSalle and Saint-Laurent. Along with this service, the City offers local ecocentre services on four separate occasions. The first will be on Saturday, May 11, 2024. For the other dates and additional details on these collections, consult the Ecocentre page on the website or your Waste Collection Guide.  

 Mattresses and box springs 

You will also notice in the Waste Collection Guide that the collection of Mattresses, Sofas and Armchairs has now become the collection of Mattresses and Box Springs. This change is due to the fact that less than 10% of recovered sofas and armchairs can be recycled, with most ending up in landfill sites.  

 Your sofa or armchair is still in good condition? We encourage you to post it on sharing or resale websites. If not, it can be put out with your household waste collection. 

 Residual material management and permanent collection points 

To ensure the best possible management of residual materials and reduce the number of items that end up in landfills, the City encourages citizens to take advantage of the permanent collection points at municipal facilities, where you can dispose of small electronics, batteries, items made of cork and polystyrene (Styrofoam). 

 By taking advantage of these various collections and collection points to dispose of your waste and items that are no longer of use to you, you’re playing your part in reducing the number of objects that end up in landfill sites. In addition to the collections, there are many sharing and resale sites and applications you can use to avoid throwing out items that could be of use to someone else.  All of our actions—individual and collective—will enhance our community’s ecological resilience.  

 Together, we can reduce our ecological footprint.
