Collection of Recyclable Materials

Industrial, Commercial and Institutional (ICI) sectors (ICI)

Did you know that you may be eligible for a door-to-door collection service for your recyclables, even as a tenant?

Did you know that reducing your waste can give you major savings just by lowering the quantity of your trash?

Did you know that there are specialized collection services for large producers of recyclable materials?

Did you know 41% of residual materials are produced by the industrial, commercial and institutional (ICI) sectors in Quebec?

In the first phase of the optimization project for collecting recyclable materials for the industrial, commercial and institutional (ICI) sectors, our team of councillors will travel across the territory from May 2018 to August 2018 to get you informed and get better acquainted with your needs.

For more information, please contact Nicola Rivest, Environmental Development Officer, by email at or by phone at 450-455-5753 x2262.

Evaluating waste materials is a serious challenge. Orientations and governmental reuse goals outline the process under the Politique québécoise de gestion des matières résiduelles (Residual Materials Management Policy of Québec)

In order to respond to the Politique québécoise de gestion des matières résiduelles, the MRC de Vaudreuil-Soulanges ensures the application of the measures of its Plans de gestion des matières résiduelles in its territory. Several measures are aimed at ICI companies. The MRC must, among other things, ensure that small ICIs are assimilated to the free regional collection of recyclable materials and ensure that the larger ICIs manage their recyclable materials accordingly.

Want to know more? Do you want to educate your employees about recycling? The MRC de Vaudreuil-Soulanges has developed a toolkit for you:

Small industrial, commercial and institutional (ICI) corporations of the territory (with quantities comparable to the residential sector) are permitted to use the facilities of the following ecocentres in order to dispose of materials from construction, renovation and demolition (CRD):

Écocentre de Vaudreuil-Dorion, 2800 Rue Henry-Ford, Vaudreuil-Dorion
Écocentre de Rigaud, 32 Rue de la Coopérative, Rigaud

The same terms as citizens apply, excluding the free first 12 cubic metres. For non-CRD materials or for more information, call 450-455-5434.

Tax on Quarries and Sand Pits

Municipal laws require municipalities in Quebec to form a local or regional roads fund and collect legally set fees from operators of sandpits and quarries on its territory in order to address certain consequences of the operation of these sites, such as damage caused to road infrastructures. In Vaudreuil-Soulanges, the MRC is responsible for managing this fund and for allocating the collected fees to municipalities.

The amount of the fees is set annually according to a law and is calculated based on the quantity (in metric tons or cubic metres) of transported material that will possibly travel on municipal public roads. These fees are payable directly to the MRC. For 2019, fees were set at $0.59 per metric ton / $1.12 per cubic metre / $1.59 per cubic metre for dressed stone.

Operators must report to the MRC three times a year the quantities of material they have produced and that have been transported offsite by completing the form below. The MRC verifies the operators’ reports, invoices payable duties and ensures collection. A team of inspectors travels the territory regularly to ensure that all operators report their activities.
