Landfill-bound (non-reusable) bulky waste collection

What is landfill-bound (non-reusable) bulky waste?

Bulky non-reusable items such as mattresses, upholstered furniture and carpets, are items that have reached the end of their useful life.
The City provides collection service for bulky items to all residents, including owners of buildings exonerated (exempt) from regular waste collection services. These owners may dispose of their bulky waste once a month on regular garbage collection days, as follows:
Exempt buildings in section 1, including sections east of Taschereau  (A - B - C - I - J - L - M - N - O - X - Y): the first Wednesday of each month
Exempt buildings in section 2, including sections west of Taschereau (P - R - S - T - V - W): the first Thursday of each month


Collection of (non-reusable) bulky items destined for landfill is included in the regular garbage collection offered by the City to residents whose properties are not exempt from the regular collections, every week:
Non-exempt buildings in section 1, including sections east of Taschereau  (A - B - C - I - J - L - M - N - O - X - Y):  every Wednesday
Non-exempt buildings in section 2, including sections west of Taschereau (P - R - S - T - V - W): every Thursday  

Waste must be placed on the curbside after 8 p.m. on the day prior to collection or before 7 a.m. on the day itself.

Other Bulky Waste and Materials Not Accepted During Landfill-Bound (Non-Reusable) Bulky Waste Collection

While some bulky waste items are not picked up during the garbage collections offered by the city, various solutions are available for you to dispose of them responsibly.
In addition, hazardous domestic waste (HDW, which includes paint cans, propane tanks, etc.), appliances containing halocarbons (refrigerators, air-conditioners, etc.) and electronics (TVs, computers, keyboards, etc.) contain substances that are harmful to public health and the environment. This waste is therefore not picked up during garbage collection, since it is not possible to ensure that it is handled safely. Please consult the table below regarding the proper disposal of these materials.
