Gatineau does not collect residual materials from industrial, commercial or institutional (ICI) establishments other than schools, certain institutions and small businesses.

If your business pays the municipal residual materials management levy, you are entitled to curbside collection if it involves no more than:

  • six household garbage containers up to a maximum of 720 litres per collection;
    As of July 15, 2019: a 120 litre container and a maximum of five tagged overflow garbage bags up to a maximum of 720 litres of household garbage per collection;
  • four 360 litre blue bins on wheels up to a maximum of 1,440 litres of recyclables per collection; and
  • four 240 litre brown bins on wheels up to a maximum of 960 litres of compostables per collection.

Call 311 or make a request to order bins or to find out more.

If you are a not-for-profit organization operating within Gatineau whose activities focus on the environment or social housing, or whose mission includes an aspect related to the management of residual materials, or that is involved in the recovery, collection or processing of residual materials, you may be entitled to lower rates at Gatinea's ecocentres and waste transfer centre. Call 311 or make a request.


The Government of Quebec's ICI ON RECYCLE + program provides tools and visibility for ICIs that are committed to practicing responsible residual materials management, and thereby help protect the environment.

The program is available to all ICIs of every size and in every activity sector that want to improve their environmental performance through integrated residual materials management.

RECYC-QUÉBEC is working with the Regroupement national des Conseils régionaux de l'environnement du Québec (RNCREQ) and the Conseils régionaux de l'environnement (CRE) across Quebec to promote ICI ON RECYCLE + and responsible residual materials management by ICIs. CREDDO is the name of the organization in charge of promoting the program in the Outaouais.

Financial assistance

If you have a sustainable residual materials management project, inquire about the financial assistance available through Gatineau's Fonds vert and the Fonds Éco IGA.
