Essentially, the environmental and financial aspects explain this decision made by those responsible for the MRC de la Haute-Yamaska. Thanks to this change, according to them, trucks will no longer have to travel throughout the territory unnecessarily for collection. It is mentioned that the measure also reduces greenhouse gas emissions.

“When we consider the financial and environmental aspects of the project, this decision makes perfect sense.”

— Paul Sarrazin, prefect of Haute-Yamaska

For his part, the prefect of the MRC applauds a change already in effect in other municipalities and territories of the province. Paul Sarrazin indicates that the costs of waste management services are constantly increasing. This type of measure makes it possible to make savings and slow down significant increases in costs for the population.

Sorting and registration

To benefit from this, citizens must now complete a form available online before the registration deadline indicated in the collection calendar for the month in question. The frequency of the service remains the same. Bulky items are always collected three times a year, in May, July and October.

People less familiar with technology can register by telephone by calling the Info-collections line at 450 378-9976, extension 2231.

Beforehand, citizens can consult the list of accepted and refused subjects. It does not change, with the exception of the branches which must now be brought to the ecocenters.

Officials remind that refrigerating and air conditioning devices (refrigerators, dehumidifiers, etc.) are no longer accepted for collection. The majority of refused items can be brought to the ecocenters at any time during opening hours.
