OPERATION ADAPTED TO THE CONTEXT OF THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC
To minimize the risk of spreading the COVID-19 virus and to promote physical distance, the following measures are in place:
- The number of vehicles on the sites will be limited, allow waiting times;
- On site, a minimum distance of 2 meters between people must be kept at all times;
- Children and pets must remain in the vehicle at all times;
- Ideally, only one person per vehicle, unless you need assistance to dispose of your heavy objects;
- The buildings and toilets are for the exclusive use of employees;
- Please plan your unloading in order to respect the closing hours. The Régie recalls that the eco-centers operate on a self-service basis;
- Citizens must therefore be able to dispose of heavy objects independently. Also, sorting materials by category before arriving at the ecocentre speeds up the service;
- Please be courteous to the employees and other users of the ecocentres during your visit.
We thank you for your collaboration.
Note: The collection of waste, recyclable and organic materials scheduled on the calendar continues as planned.
The Board is monitoring developments and inviting people to subscribe to its Facebook page and consult www.laregieverte.ca to be notified of any changes.
