An online directory of service centres accepting recyclable items that do not belong in the blue bin

The Memphrémagog MRC is proud to announce the launch of a new online directory of the salvaging services offered on its territory.

Used oil, paint containers, tool batteries, pool linings and electrical devices: these are the types of items that often end up in the blue recycling bin because citizens don’t know how to get rid of them.

« Wanting to dispose of their waste ecologically, citizens put things in their blue bin that they believe to be recyclable » says Lisette Maillé, Mayor of Austin and President of the Sustainable Development Committee at the MRC. « But the sorting centre is not equipped to deal with this type of waste, which often causes equipment breakdowns. This is why we have created the online directory, so the population can easily find where they can get get rid of items such as these. »

The Directory (in French only) is available at
