You can dispose of your big garbage (sofa, table, chairs, big appliances, etc.). To do this, two special collections are held during the year in July and October. The exact dates will be communicated to you in due course. The morning of the special collection of the big rubbish, you only have to drop them on the street with the regular garbage. To do so, leave it on the side of the road, beside your garbage bin.
Construction materials must be taken to the Eco-Centre. For more information on accepted materials, business hours, or rates call the Eco-Centre at 819 845-2544 or visit their Web site.
