Annual HHW Collection Days

List of HHW materials 

Many household, automotive and gardening products are even more harmful to the environment if improperly discarded. The following products must not go in the regular garbage nor down the drain, but should instead be brought to your local Écocentre:

  • paint
  • paint strippers
  • varnishes and stains
  • solvents
  • acids
  • oxidizing agents
  • used oil or gas
  • dry-cell batteries
  • pesticides
  • car batteries
  • antifreeze
  • cleaners
  • aerosol cans
  • propane tanks (full or empty)
  • any other product marked toxic, corrosive, reactive or flammable


Other options if you miss the annual collection

There are six Écocentres on the territory of the City of Montreal where you may dispose of Hazardous Household Waste throughout the year. The closest one to our Town is Écocentre Côte-des-Neiges, at 6925 Côte-des-Neiges, between Bedford and Jean-Talon. Proof of residence is required (driving permit, copy of a tax bill, Accès-Montréal card or a utility bill with an identity card.) Please note that the Centre is closed on Mondays but open on Saturdays. For their business hours please call 514 872-3517.

Other places where to dispose of certain Hazardous Household Waste:

  • Used tires, engine oil, and car batteries: Used tires are not accepted in the regular refuse collection. However, residents may dispose of them in any garage that sells tires.
  • Paints and dyes: Residents may dispose of oil and latex paints as well as stains at the RONA Dismat stores. If the container is empty, it may be discarded in the refuse only after the traces of paint in the container are completely dry. Ideally, bring the container to the HHW collections or to one of the Eco-Centres.
  • Propane tanks: Certain dealers accept used tanks for recycling.
  • Outdated medication: Outdated medication can be returned to a pharmacy at all times.
