Garbage collection

For household waste collection, the town is divided into 2 collection areas (east and west), each of which is serviced every 2 weeks, every other Thursday. Waste must be placed in the green bin provided by the Town of Hudson. Only this bin will be emptied. All other bins or bags will not be collected.

Consult the 2022 Collections Calendar

Instructions on the use of wheeled bins

The vehicles used for garbage and recycling collection are equipped with a mechanical arm to lift the 240 and 360L wheeled bins. Food waste collection is done manually. For your bins to be emptied, it is important to follow the instructions below. Failure to do so may result in your bin not being picked up and may, in some circumstances, lead to a fine.

The wheeled bins are the property of the Town: blue for recycling, green for garbage and brown for compost. Each bin has a serial number associated with an address. The bins must not be interchanged with those of your neighbours. We recommend that you put your address in the space provided on the bin.

Placement of the bins for collection

The placement of the bins must not prevent snow removal or street cleaning.

In winter, because of the snow removal, the bins must be placed in the driveway entrance. Place your bin 1 meter from the street (not in the street or on the sidewalk), wheels facing your home. If you have multiple collections on the same day, place your bins a minimum of 30 cm apart from each other, and a minimum of 1 metre away from any objects, trees, cars, etc., in order to allow room for the mechanical arm to access your bin.

For household waste collection, the town is divided into 2 collection areas (east and west), each of which is serviced every 2 weeks, every other Thursday. Waste must be placed in the green bin provided by the Town of Hudson. Only this bin will be emptied. All other bins or bags will not be collected.

Consult the 2022 Collections Calendar

When to put out your bins

Place your bin at the end of your driveway in the evening before the collection, as the trucks do not always pass at the same time so pickup may be very early in the morning. Be sure to store your bins by 8 pm on the day of collection.

Maintenance

Regular cleaning of the bins is strongly suggested, especially before repairs or replacement of a bin.

Food waste collection

Food waste collection takes place every week on Wednesdays. Bins should be placed on your private property a maximum of one metre from the curb.

Face the wheels towards your residence so that the lid opens to the street. Make sure the bin is free of other objects within a perimeter of 60 cm.

Consult the 2022 Collections Calendar

Recycling collection

Face the wheels towards your residence so that the lid opens to the street. Make sure the bin is free of other objects within a perimeter of 60 cm.

Some non-profit organizations will also accept household items that are in good condition as well as some broken electrical appliances.

Materials not accepted: fridge, freezer, air conditioner, glass, tires, wheels, metal pipes, electronics, televisions, computers, small household appliances, renovation and demolition material, earth, brick, wood, asphalt, light bulbs, paint, oil, hazardous household waste (HHW)

Rigaud Eco-Centre 32, rue de la Coopérative, Rigaud 450-451-0869

Écocentre

The Vaudreuil-Soulanges MRC Écocentres are regional facilities that serve as a complement to existing municipal collection services.

Unsure what to do with materials that are not accepted as part of municipal waste collection? Make an environmentally friendly choice by bringing them to one of your local Écocentres!

The Écocentre services are available only to residents of the 23 municipalities within the Vaudreuil-Soulanges MRC. Residents can deposit up to 12 m3 of materials every year, free of charge.

You must sort all of your materials before arriving at any of the Écocentres located in the Vaudreuil-Soulanges MRC.

Important: organic waste such as leaves, branches, soil and grass clippings are not accepted.

Make sure you bring proof of residence from any of the 23 Vaudreuil-Soulanges municipalities when you visit one of your local Écocentres

Écocentre services are included in the government’s list of essential services and residents are encouraged to bring their bulk items to one of the Écocentres in the MRC. As Éco-centres operate in a “self-service” format, residents handle their own materials.

For details regarding the operation of the Écocentre, opening hours, and accepted materials, consult the MRC de Vaudreuil-Soulanges website:

Green practices to adopt

Grasscycling and leafcycling involve leaving grass clippings on the lawn after mowing and shredding dead leaves instead of collecting them in the fall. In addition to requiring less effort, these methods provide a natural fertilizer to enrich your lawn or spaces.

Home Composting: Properly processing green waste helps reduce the negative impacts associated with landfilling and creates quality compost.
