To minimize the risk of spreading the COVID-19 virus and to promote physical distance, the following measures are in place:

  • All users must wear a mask or face covering in all of the Régie’s ecocentres (indoor and outdoor). Access to the facilities will be prohibited for anyone refusing to wear a mask;
  • 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.
