From April to November, branches are collected monthly throughout the Notre-Dame-de-l’Île-Perrot. The Municipality provides this service free of charge (on properties excluding vacant lots) if the volume of branches is under 4 ft. × 4 ft. × 8 ft. and the diameter of the branches is no greater than 4 in. Collection begins on the second Monday of each month and usually runs for five to seven days.
Unlike in past years, you must not call Land Management to make arrangements. All branches, up to the maximum volume, placed at the curb will be collected.
As in the past, branches must be placed at the curb by 7 a.m. on the first day of the collection. They must be arranged neatly, with the trunks toward the roadway, but not encroaching on the roadway.
If the volume of branches exceeds the stated maximum, the Municipality will charge a fee. In this case, you must call Land Management one week before the start of the collection, to get an estimate. Once the fee has been paid, the branches will be collected as part of the regular collection. NOTE: Volumes of branches greater than the maximum will be collected only if the fee has been paid.
Remember that you must obtain a municipal permit before you cut down a tree.
The branches are collected and turned into mulch, which the Municipality makes available to residents. For more information, contact our Guichet unique or Public Works at 514-453-4128.
The Municipality will collect Christmas trees during the second week of January (starting January 8, 2018).
Please place your Christmas trees at the curb on Monday morning. The trees will be chipped and composted.
Household waste collection
Household waste is collected on FRIDAYS after 7 a.m. The collection is automated and uses 360-litre wheeled grey bins bearing the municipal logo. Large items that will not fit into the bin will be collected on the third Friday of each month (see “Large Items” below).
Who owns the bin?
Bins belong to the building; therefore, you must leave them behind if you move.
When and where should bins be set out?
Wheeled bins for household waste must be placed at the curb between 9 p.m. on the night before the collection and 7 a.m. on the day of the collection, which is FRIDAY throughout Notre-Dame-de-l’Île-Perrot. Bins must be put away within 12 hours of the collection. Bins must not be placed on the street, but in a driveway or on the property. They must be positioned on the property, in the driveway crossing, as close to the sidewalk as possible, without encroaching on the roadway, bicycle path or sidewalk.
The Notre-Dame-de-l’Île-Perrot logo on the front of the bin must face the street (similar to recycling bins). Do not place anything on or around the bin. The bin must be 30 cm away from surrounding objects.
Waste must be arranged in the bin so that the lid can be closed completely.
No container or bag left outside the bin will be emptied or collected.
If your bin is too small, it may be time to start recycling more (extra recycling bins are available for $90 each).
How many bins are allocated for each type of building?
Single family: one bin
Multi-unit (including condominiums): one bin for every two dwellings (rounded up)
Commercial and industrial: one bin
WASTE PLACED IN A 360-LITRE CONTAINER NOT BEARING THE MUNICIPAL LOGO WILL NOT BE COLLECTED.
Large items are collected on the third Friday of each month. Item must be properly placed at the curb before 7 a.m. on the day of the collection
If you have furniture or other items that cannot be reclaimed or recycled, please note that large items that will not fit into your bin will be collected only on the third Friday of each month.
Please note that only the large items that will not fit into your bin will be collected. These include furniture, water heaters, matresses, but exclude the following:
- Information and communication technology (CIT) waste;
- Electrical appliances;
- Household hazardous waste;
- Construction and demolition waste EXCEPT bathtubs, shower units, sinks and toilets;
- Soil, stones, bricks, wood, branches, tree stumps, auto body parts, tires;
- ANY MATERIALS PLACED IN A CONTAINER (bags, wheeled bins, other containers);
- RECYCLABLE MATERIALS;
- Green residues (leaves, grass, etc.).
Some materials on the exception list are accepted at the MRC de Vaudreuil-Soulanges Ecocenter.
In Notre-Dame-de-l’Île-Perrot, recycling is collected weekly, on Thursdays between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. The wheeled bins must be placed at the curb by 7 a.m. on the morning of the collection.
Since the collection is automated, bins must be placed at the curb in a specific way. The most common problem encountered is incorrectly positioned bins. Bins must be positioned with the logo facing the street, no more than 1.5 m from the roadway and at least 60 cm away from surrounding objects or neighbouring bins. Note that recycling placed in a small 64-litre bin or beside a wheeled bin will not be collected. Large boxes must be cut into pieces and placed inside the bin. The lid of the bin must be kept closed.
Extra bins are available for $90 (tax included) at the Municipal Workshops during regular hours of operations.
For more information, please refer to the Recycling Collection Guide 2016.
In 2012 Notre-Dame-de-l’Île-Perrot, in cooperation with Vaudreuil-Dorion, Pincourt and L’Île-Perrot, began collecting yard waste within its boundaries. Three yard waste collection dates have been scheduled in Notre-Dame-de-l’Île-Perrot in Fall 2017, namely October 11 and November 1st and 15.
Accepted containers : transparent, orange or paper bags .
Green ou black garbage bags will not be picked up.
The goal is simple: to reduce the amount of waste that ends up in the landfill and turn this resource into compost, a 100% natural fertilizer. By participating in the collection, residents help maintain a healthy and eco-friendly environment, while reducing the cost of waste management. Note that, starting in May 2006, we have had to pay the provincial government a levy on each tonne of waste sent to the landfill. Therefore, composting dead leaves is both economically and environmentally beneficial.
Where: Door to door
When: October 11 and November 1st and 15
How: Place bags at the curb on the night before the collection. Collection begins at 7 a.m.
NOTE THAT HOUSEHOLD WASTE SERVICES WILL NOT COLLECT YARD WASTE BAGS DURING THIS PERIOD.
Yard waste collection: Be a part of a winning solution!
Yard Waste Bin
The Municipality has set up a yard waste container (for grass, garden waste and dead leaves) at the Municipal Workshops. Yard waste is sent to a compost site. Branches are not accepted, since they are picked up monthly.
You must place yard waste in recyclable paper bags or empty your containers or other types of bags directly into the yard waste container. Please come during regular hours of operation.
The Vaudreuil-Soulanges Ecocentre opened to the public on April 26. Located at 2800 Henry-Ford Street, Vaudreuil-Dorion, on 15 000 m² of land, the location has a permanent drop-off area with 10 bins for the various materials accepted, and a warehouse for materials to be reused.
An ecocentre is a secure collection centre that provides residents with a simple and effective way to dispose of many types of waste material that may be harmful to the environment. By promoting waste recovery and reclamation, the Vaudreuil-Soulanges Ecocentre makes it possible to divert a significant amount of waste from landfills and give it a second life.
Residents of Notre-Dame-de-l’Île-Perrot and the 22 other municipalities of the Vaudreuil-Soulanges RCM who present valid photo identification and proof of residency may dispose of many materials in an eco-friendly way. Don’t know what to do with the toaster you can’t repair or with your paint cans? Go green and take them to the Ecocentre!
What is household hazardous waste?
“Household hazardous waste” (HHW) refers to hazardous waste from a large number of common household products. HHW must not be thrown in the garbage or poured down the drain, because it contains substances that may be harmful to the environment and to human health. Although used oil and filters, paints, car batteries and solvents are the main products in this category of waste, a large number of other products, including garden pesticides, acidic or caustic cleaning products, drugs, used batteries and glues, may cause harm to health and the environment if used, mixed, stored or disposed of inappropriately.
How to dispose of it
The opening of the Vaudreuil-Soulanges Ecocentre has given the residents of the Vaudreuil-Soulanges Regional County Municipality (RCM) an eco-friendly way to dispose of HHW.
- Bring a piece of identification as proof of residency in the Vaudreuil-Soulanges RCM.
- Keep HHW in the original containers and do not mix the products.
- Bring HHW from household use only, because HHW from industrial or commercial use will not be accepted.
Residents may also dispose of HHW at most locations of the following businesses:
Paint and empty paint cans
Municipal Workshops, Rona, Réno-Dépôt, BMR and Home Depot. To find the drop-off location closest to you, go to the Éco-Peinture website.
Canadian Tire and most tire retailers.
Electronics and computer equipment
Bureau en Gros, Future Shop and Best Buy.
Rechargeable and non-rechargeable batteries
Municipal Workshops, Town Hall, Carrefour Notre-Dame and the library.
Used oil, containers and filters
Monsieur Muffler, Octo, some dealers and Canadian Tire. To find the drop-off location closest to you, go to the Société de gestion des huiles usagées website.
Compact fluorescent light bulbs and fluorescent tubes
Rona, Réno-Dépôt, IKEA and Home Depot. You can also visit the RecycFluo website to find other drop-off locations.
It is recommended that you call before going to a retailer, to confirm that HHW is accepted. For other kinds of HHW or for more information, go to the HHW section of the Vaudreuil-Soulanges RCM website or to the RECYC-QUÉBEC website (in French).
