Waste management

Curb collections calendar

Our plan to manage ecologically

The Municipal curb collection of residual waste is done mechanically, using 360 litres rolling bins. This method allows residents to recycle more and helps us achieve the Quebec government’s objective to reduce landfill by 60 %. Please see collection calendar.

These bins belong to the Municipality of Morin-Heights. However, property owners remain responsible for their maintenance. The bin must remain on location, if the property is sold.

All requests related to the repair, replacement, and delivery of bins, as well as any problems related to the collections, must be sent to the MRC’s info-collection line by phone at 1 855 PDH-RECY (1 855 734-7329) or 450 229-8052 or by email at infocollecte@mrcpdh.org.

Delivery requests for new constructions only must be made through the Town Planning and Environment Department by phone at 450 226-3232, ext. 115 or by email at service.urbanisme@morinheights.com.

Big items collection: Consult the calendar.

Construction materials, organic matter, and domestic hazardous wastes, including batteries, paint, cleaners, solvents, fuels and their containers are not accepted in either of the bins for weekly collection. Scroll down for information about the Ecocentre.

This service is only offered to residents, not for commercial use.

Curb collection

For waste collection, bins have to be brought to the curb without hindering traffic or snow removal, with the opening towards the street. Bins which are not on the curb will not be emptied.

For more information, consult the Nuisance By-law 583-2019.


Only the contents of these bins are collected. Large boxes or extra cardboard can be folded, flattened and included in the blue bin for collection.

What goes in the recycling bin.

Items not accepted in the recycling bin:
Diapers, food scraps, photographs, non recoverable toys, windows, dishes, mirrors, rubber, plastics with the #6 symbols, plastics without any Mobius symbol, construction materials.

Care & storage of bins

Owners are responsible for maintaining their bins in good condition. As of September 1st 2008, replacing a neglected bin can cost the owner ($100.00).

For damaged bins & broken wheels, please call 450-226-3232, ext. 115.

In winter numerous bins suffer extensive damage because they are left on the side of the road or broken by private snow removal contractors. Heavily damaged bins and bins with broken wheels will not be emptied. The Municipality strongly suggests to citizens to make the necessary arrangements to manage the storing of the bins if they go away or if they are part-time residents. Bin storage between collections is essential in order to preserve the appearance of the local settings.

All residents, as well as part-time dwellers are asked to leave their bins out of sight or store them in a specially designed structure (permit required) between collections.
