Would you like to get rid of mercury lightbulbs (fluorocompact, fluorescent, etc.), batteries, cans of paint, oil, aerosols and other dangerous products? You have three options: travelling collections, ecocentres and other drop-off sites.
Travelling hazardous household waste (HHW) collections are held on the island of Montréal in the spring and fall. They take place in several boroughs and neighbouring municipalities. All island of Montréal residents can drop off their HHW at our temporary collection sites during opening hours.
See the schedule.
See a list of accepted materials.
Is there no travelling collection in your neighbourhood? Visit an ecocentre to drop off your HHW.
