Many of your recoverable and valorizable materials will be accepted at the ecocentres. Access is free for Gatineau residents. Proof of residence will be required.
Household garbage, bulky waste and certain recoverables can be dropped off at the waste transfer centre. There may be a fee.
The fee for residual materials dropped off at the ecocentres and the waste transfer centre depends on the user, as per by-law 61-2006 on fees for goods, services and activities offered by Ville de Gatineau.
There is no limit on quantities for residents. Other users are limited to one load, which is the equivalent of 1 m3, or the contents of a 2.44 x 1.22 x 0.3 metre (8 x 4 x 1 foot) trailer.
Payment methods: credit card, debit card or cash.
In 2021, a mobile ecocentres pilot project is launched in the Aylmer and Buckingham sectors to make it easier for all residents to access the ecocentres.
Hours: 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
