Reminder – Operation of the MRC Brome-Missisquoi Ecocentre, Sutton site – Opening April 27th, 2019

The Public Works Department wishes to remind you of the following:

  • Disassemble your items and separate your materials before coming to the Ecocentre (Example: vinyl must be separate from plywood before coming to the Ecocentre).
  • Only residential material is accepted.
  • No commercial material is accepted.
  • The contents of the trailers accepted at the Ecocentre must be of a maximum volume of 64 cubic feet, the equivalent of a residential type trailer approximately 4 feet x 8 feet x 2 feet (1.8 cubic meters).
  • HHW (Household Hazardous Waste) (paint and oil) must be in their original containers and in a maximum quantity of 8 gallons.

For the list of accepted and refused materials: follow this link.

Please note that the Cowansville Ecocentre will be exceptionally open twice in May, namely on Saturday May 4th and 18th. For the schedule of all the ecocentres, please consult this calendar.

Ecocentre employees reserve the right to refuse a citizen that does not respect
the operation rules and the prescribed quantities.

 

Correction – deposit of light bulbs at the Ecocentre only

Town of Sutton wishes to rectify an error published in the municipal bulletin of April 2019 . Light bulbs must be brought to the municipal Ecocentre or the MRC Ecocentre of Sutton and not left at the Town Hall’s front desk.

Thank you for your understanding.

 

Recyclable materials

Glass bottles filled with hazardous liquids were found in the recyclable bins for the past collections in surrounding towns, which represent a significant health and safety risk for citizens and employees manipulating the recyclable materials.

The Public Works Department would like to remind you that:

  • Recyclable materials must be emptied, when applicable and rinsed properly if they are soiled.
  • Household hazardous waste (HHW) has to stay in its original container and be brought to the municipal Ecocentre or the MRC Ecocentre of Sutton.

HHW can also be brought to the Régie intermunicipale de gestion des matières résiduelles de Brome-Missisquoi.

Thank you for your collaboration! It makes all the difference!
