Selective collection of recyclables

The MRC has jurisdiction over the management of recyclable materials generated on its territory for transportation, collection and processing. The MRC has provided more than 20 years of curbside recycling for all 23 municipalities

As part of the renewal of the regional contract for the management of recyclable materials (2017-2022), an agreement was signed between the MRC and TRICENTRIS - Centre de tri, a Quebec non-profit organization (NPO) and innovative player in the Waste management sector. The organization serves more than 200 municipalities in Quebec. As of January 2017, recycling materials from the approximately 150,000 citizens of the MRC are processed at the Lachute sorting center. In addition, Mr. Hans Gruenwald Jr., Mayor of the City of Rigaud, has been appointed to sit on the Board of Directors of TRICENTRIS.

With 16,172 tons of recyclable materials recovered in 2016, the MRC recovery rate is already approaching the objectives of the Policy on waste management’s target of 70%. 

As part of the Compensation regime for the collection of recyclables, paid by companies that put containers, packaging, printed materials and print media on the Quebec market, the MRC received amounts for the municipal services provided. In 2014, the amount of compensation for recyclable materials collected and recovered was $ 2,583,393.

The selective collection of blue bins takes place weekly.
