Important

  • Be sure to sort your materials before dropping them off at the ecocentre. This will enable you to unload them into the appropriate containers more quickly and safely.
  • You are responsible for manually unloading your materials. The attendants are not there to help you. If you think you will need help, then bring someone with you.
  • Dump trailers may only be used for rubble and asphalt shingles.
  • Gatineau reserves the right to refuse any load of construction waste mixed with household garbage or other not accepted materials.
