At our office
If you are a resident of Côte-des-Neiges, you can come to our office to pick up a new brown bin (food waste/compost) or montréalais bin (recycling) and drop off your damaged bins. Please remember to bring a proof of address which includes your name and your current address with you (such as a driver’s licence, municipal tax statement or Hydro-Quebec bill).
Make sure your damaged bins are washed well with vinegar or dish detergent before bringing them to our office. We store them in our office until they’re picked up by the borough.
Drop-off point for certain waste items
Please note that other hazardous household waste items not mentioned below (for example: paint, chemical products, car batteries, computers, televisions, etc.) should be brought to the Côte-des-Neiges Écocentre. Please consult Montréal website for all of the details and for the locations of the other Écocentres.
Our office is a drop-off point for the following items (only for Côte-des-Neiges residents and in small quantities):
