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!

Reminder: Bin collection (organic material, recyclable materials and domestic waste)
The Public Works Department wishes to remind you of the following information:
To ensure that your bin is collected:
• Place your bin with its wheels facing the house
• Position the bin on the roadside before 7 a.m. on the day of the pickup
• Make sure it is easily accessible and at least two feet away from any other object
It is very important that you put only accepted organic materials in your brown bin: This means NO plastic bags (whether regular, biodegradable, or compostable), NO recyclables and NO household waste are allowed.
For a list of what to put in your brown bin as well as the 2019 calendar for pickup, visit the Town’s Website by clicking on the following link.

In order to determine which day the collection of organic materials is for your zone, citizens are invited to consult the annual municipal calendar. The collection schedule is also available on the Town’s website at the following the link:

Important change in the collection of residual material (garbage and organic)
The new brown bin service for the collection of organic materials starts 10 and 11 January 2019. During the winter it will take place every two weeks. About 45% of the content of our domestic waste is organic material, this must now go in the new brown bins and will be collected for composting. As a result, also starting in January 2019, the Town will collect domestic garbage every 4 weeks. The collection of recyclable materials does not change and will continue every 2 weeks. Note that there is no change at this time to the collection service for businesses.
In order to know the exact day for each collection (organic, garbage and recycle), in each sector, citizens are invited to consult the municipal calendar which will be distributed to residents before the end of the year. The collection schedules for all residual materials can also be viewed on the Town’s website:
