Collection of organic materials

The Ministry of Sustainable Development, Environment and Fight against Climate Change (MSDEFCC) adopted the Québec Policy on waste management. In order to meet the objectives, the Action Plan 2011-2015 intends to ban by 2020 the burial of organic matter or green waste such as leaves, grass and food.

This policy aims at creating a zero-waste society that seeks to maximize the added value through sound management of its waste. Fundamental objectives are to ensure that the only residual material removed in Québec is the “ultimate residue”, which cannot be treated by any existing method (recycling, composting, reuse, etc.).

2015-2016 Autumn leaf collection

For 2015-2016 year , all municipalities of the MRC de Vaudreuil-Soulanges will provide the collection, transport, treatment and recycling of green waste on their territory. Every citizen will have to contact their city or municipality for the collection schedule on his territory.
