Take items to an ecocentre – Contractors and self-employed workers in construction

If you own a company located in the Montréal agglomeration, you can bring construction, renovation and demolition waste (CRD), as well as other materials, to an ecocentre. Fees vary depending on the material.

You must come to the ecocentre on behalf of your company or be accompanied by the resident where the work was done.

Before you go:

  • View the map to find the ecocentre nearest you.
  • See the waiting time.
  • Sort your items in the trunk of your car: this will make your visit shorter.
  • Prepare the documents you will have to show.

For your own safety, we recommend you wear safety glasses, closed shoes and work gloves when sorting and unloading your materials.

Materials accepted and fees charged

  • Construction, renovation and demolition (CRD) waste: $27 per m3
  • Metals, green waste and electronic products: free

The volume accepted may be limited.

Use of the weigh scale: $13.50
