The management of residual materials is a major stake for the preservation of our environment. Selective sorting, waste reduction at the source, individual composting are things that matter, and we all have a role to play.
This page gives you all the necessary information to make an efficient sorting and allow you to dispose the different materials in the right place.
How to dispose of certain materials
Household hazardous waste (HHW)
Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) are products that are used in your home and are hazardous to health and the environment. These products should not be disposed of in garbage or in sewage or sewage systems because they contaminate the environment.
The HHW’s are identified on the labels by the following pictograms:
The majority of HHWs in their original containers can be brought to the Ecocentres, however it is preferable to consult the list of HHWs that are accepted before going to the site, you will find it by following the following link: Accepted HHW’S
In addition, some HHW’s are picked up by businesses in our region, ask them.
Every year, the Municipality of Brigham organizes a door-to-door collection to collect the Christmas trees. Consult the collection calendar to find out the date.
Other options: It is also possible to carry your tree, at low cost, to the Recuperation 2000 sorting center located at 133 Dryden Street in Cowansville. In addition, the RIEDSBM (landfill site) located at 2500, rang Saint-Joseph in Cowansville accepts fir trees (charges may apply).
At all times, it is important to remove all decorations.
Leaves and cut grass (Grasscycling)
Every year, the Municipality of Brigham organizes a collection of leaves. Consult the collection calendar to find out the dates.
You can also bring your leaves to the Brome-Missisquoi Intermediate Solid Waste Disposal Board (R.I.E.D.S.B.M.).
Since it is forbidden to throw your grass clippings in the garbage, the Municipality invites you to Grasscycle. Grasscycling is the action of leaving the cut grass and leaves on the ground when mowing. To consult the brochure of the Brome-Missisquoi MRC click here for more information.
Compostable materials include table and garden scraps. This material category accounts for nearly 60% of the buried residential materials. This is why it is important to develop various programs to enhance them rather than bury them.
For more information, see the Home Recovery Guide.
Electronic products that are not longer useable can be recycled FREE of charge simply by taking used products to an official EPRA-Quebec drop-off point.
Batteries are collected at the Town Hall.
In addition, several businesses in the region also collect batteries, see below
