Ecocentre, an ecological solution to reduce your ecological footprint

What is an Ecocentre?

The Ecocentre is a site that allows the free disposal of various residual materials by encouraging the reuse, the recovery and the valorization of these. It avoids unnecessary filling of the landfill site while reducing our ecological footprint.

How it works

  1. Bring your accepted materials that you will have taken care to sort before arriving at the Ecocentre. You are entitled to a maximum volume of 64 cubic feet, equivalent to a residential trailer of approximately 4 feet x 8 feet x 2 feet;
  2. Present a proof of residence and identification to the Ecocentre worker;
  3. Place your material in the containers provided for this purpose. The attendant will tell you which one to use. Note that it is your responsibility to unload your trailer.
