To dispose of bulky items in a practical and ecological way (old tires, bathtubs, sinks, etc.) as well as construction materials (concrete, wood, asphalt, etc.), go to the Écocentre LaSalle (7272, rue Saint-Patrick).
You may also bring your household hazardous waste there (solvents, paint, batteries, pesticides, etc.) as well as recoverable materials, such as earth, natural Christmas trees, metal, etc. To avoid the spread of emerald ash borers, dead or cut branches must not be disposed of in the same container as green waste. Phone 311 to find out your Borough's procedure for such disposal.
Look for the number 6—a program
Look for the number 6—a program that provides Montrealers with an opportunity to recycle their polystyrene items by bringing them to the Écocentre LaSalle, located at 7272 rue Saint-Patrick. These items must be clean and include no packaging, labels, absorbent pads or aluminum covers. Polystyrene can be identified by a triangle with the number 6 inside.

Also at the ecocentre is a storage depot for reusable items, such as used clothing, furniture, electrical household appliances, small electrical appliances and sporting goods. These goods are given to community organizations that are partners with the city in its re-use program.
The ecocentre's services are free for all domestic users living in Montréal. Different rates apply to business users. In the latter case, the rates are based on the volume and type of materials disposed of there. Before bringing your items, contact the ecocentre for further details.
