Put aside your Styrofoam and #6 plastics, keeping them separate (use different bags or boxes). You can bring them to the collection sites of HHW, e-waste, etc. that takes place twice a year in the parking lot of City Hall, in the spring and fall.
In order to manage our recyclable materials more efficiently, let’s divert non-recyclable Styrofoam and #6 plastic from the recycling centers. It’s an eco-friendly gesture!
The recyclable materials you can put in your blue recycling bin are cardboard, paper, plastic (except for Styrofoam and #6 plastic), glass and metal.
Next collection sites dates
Saturday, April 30 and Sunday, May 1
Sunday, September 11th
Other collection points
In Montreal, there are 2 drop-off points to dispose the products: the LaSalle and Saint-Laurent Ecocentres
3535 Sartelon Street
