Large trash items collection
The Borough can dispose of large trash items (furniture, household appliances, etc.). Large trash items collected on Saint-Laurent territory will be repurposed, meaning that their raw materials will be used for other more ecological purposes (energy production, reuse, and recycling, etc.). For example, wood from furniture could be repurposed to make mulch.
Buildings with 9 housing units and more where household waste is collected twice a week : Large trash items are collected every Thursday.
Buildings with 8 housing units or less where household waste is collected once a week or every two weeks : Once a month depending on the district.
