Bulky Items Collection
The Borough of Saint-Laurent offers its residents a collection that enables them to dispose of their bulky items. Large trash items collected will be repurposed, meaning that their raw materials are used for other more ecological purposes (energy production, reuse, and recycling, etc.).
Since they are loaded onto two separate trucks (according to their type), bulky items must be placed in two different piles for collection. Simply place them on the curb in two piles in an orderly manner and at a distance of at least 1 metre from the garbage bin(s).
1. Non-upholstered bulky items and construction, renovation and demolition (CRD) debris
- Furniture made of wood, metal or any other recyclable material: tables, chairs, drawers and shelving units
- Household appliances (excluding refrigerators, freezers and air conditioners)
- Toilets, bathtubs and sinks
- Wood without any nails or screws (bundled, tied and measuring no more than 1 metre long)
- Brick, mortar, ceramic and flat glass
- Siding material and drywall
- Rigid plastics and large cardboard boxes
2. Upholstered bulky items
- Upholstered furniture: sofas, armchairs and chairs
- Mattresses and box springs
- Carpets and rugs (rolled up and tied)
Dates of bulky items collection
The two different types of bulky items will not be collected at the same time because they will be loaded onto two different trucks. The two piles will, however, be collected on the same day according to the regular schedule for each sector, which is:
- Once a month for residential buildings and industrial, commercial and institutional establishments (ICIs) where household waste is collected by means of wheeled bins provided by the Borough.
- Once a week (every Thursday) for buildings with 9 or more housing units and ICIs where household waste is collected by means of garbage bags or large wheeled containers.
In the event of major work, we recommend using a private container service.
The following materials and articles are not accepted in any of the Borough’s collections and must be brought to an ecocentre:
- Hazardous household waste: paint, oil, cleaning products, batteries, pesticides, chlorine, solvents, flammable liquids, fluorescent tubes and bulbs.
- Electronic products: televisions, computers, printers, sound systems, DVD players and cellphones.
Household waste, organic waste and green waste must only be disposed of in the collections provided for these types of materials.
Fridges and freezers
Appliances containing refrigerant gases (ex: refrigerators, freezers and air conditioners) are subject to a special collection by the Borough. A request must be made by calling 311.
As a safety measure, all locks and doors must be removed from appliances such as refrigerators and freezers before they can be disposed of.
Pass it on!
Articles that are in good condition may be useful to other people in the community. Think about offering them to organizations or companies that will pass them on to others. For more information (in French).
