Recyclable materials

Your recyclable materials that the Town collects are sent to the Tricentris sorting centre.

What are leafcycling and grasscycling?

Basically, it’s taking our cue from nature and letting leaves, flowers, stems, blades of grass and other types of yard waste decompose in the soil where they grew.

A community measure that makes a difference

In September 2016, the Town of Rosemère introduced organic waste pick-ups in all residential, commercial and institutional sectors. This initiative seeks to significantly reduce the quantity of domestic waste sent to landfill sites, allowing the recovery of organic waste as compost. It will also make it possible to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and, in the process, help meet Québec objectives in the fight against climate change.

2,300 metric tons: our annual goal!

GREEN WASTE

Do you know what to do with your green waste?

You can dispose of green waste in large paper bags, or use an additional, reuseable container (it must not be blue or black). You must identify the reusable container with the sticker provided by the Town. If you have more than one container, you can contact the Technical Services and Public Works Department for additional stickers. The contents will be picked up weekly, at the same time as your brown bin.
