For appliances and miscellaneous metal items, please place them beside your regular waste, on the day of household waste and they will be picked up the same day or a few days later with a different truck.

Before you call…have you thought of donating these items to charity?

Please note that we WILL NOT ACCEPT construction materials (gravel, earth, stone, concrete, asphalt shingles, etc.) or tree branches.
 
 
Recyclable Materials
 
Statistics confirm that 6% of recyclable materials must be sent to the landfill site because they are not included on the list of acceptable items or because they are contaminated (e.g. motor oil containers, excess grease in pizza boxes, etc.). To avoid contamination and odours, simply rinse lids and containers. Also, please wash your bin a few times a year to avoid contamination.
 
 
In the Spring of 2005, a new regional recycling facility operated by Cascades opened in Chelsea.

Recyclable Materials - Policy on Bins 

1. OBJECTIVES 
 
1.1. General Objectives
The 360-litre blue bin on wheels has been selected for recyclable materials, in order to reach the recycling target established in the Quebec Residual Materials Management Policy 1998-2008, and which appears in the MRC des Collines-de-l'Outaouais residual materials management plan (PGMR). 
 
 
1.2. Specific objectives
The purpose of this document is to establish the conditions for the management and use of the bins. 
 
 

2. SCOPE 

2.1. Dispositions générales
Each property serviced receives the amount of bins corresponding to the number of residences in the building free of charge. Serviced properties are those buildings with residential activity. 
  • 1 bin: Dwelling with 1 or 2 apartments;
  • 2 bins: Dwelling with 3 or 4 apartments;
  • 3 bins: Dwelling with 5 or more apartments.
 
The source financing for the bins is a lending arrangement the MRC des Collines entered into for member Municipalities, including Chelsea. 
 
 
Citizens are responsible for the bin or bins on wheels associated with their property. As the bin is attached to the property, the citizen is not the owner of the bin and must leave it at the property if s/he moves. In this regard, each bin has a distinct number, which is entered into a computer database (Gestionnaire municipal). 
 
 
The bin shall be left by the roadside for collection in accordance with the applicable regulations for waste collection, i.e.: 
 
  • Alternating with garbage (once every 2 weeks);
  • No later than 7 a.m. on collection day itself as established by the Municipalities, and removed no later than 6 p.m. on the same day. If the bin is brought out too late, the homeowner will have to wait for the next pick-up.
 
Under no circumstances should the bins be left indefinitely by the roadside. Should the citizen be unable to handle his/her bin, due to uneven terrain or limited access to the property, a structure may be installed at the roadside at his/her expense. This installation may consist of (but is not limited to) a platform, box, etc. However, such an arrangement does not release the homeowner from the responsibility for putting recyclable material by the roadside according to the established collection schedule. 
 
 
For private roads with no access for garbage trucks, a set of bins may be arranged at an accessible point and the residents of said roads shall bear the expense of the structures for this purpose. 
 
 
Public works services shall ensure that the placement of the set of bins does not impede waste collection and snow removal.
 
 
2.2. Specific provisions 
All new dwellings shall receive a bin free of charge from such time as they are found suitable for residence. The bin will be delivered by the Municipality. Upon delivery, the homeowner takes responsibility for the bin. 
 
 
2.2.1 Theft 
A police report is required. If the Municipality receives the police report no later than 15 days after the robbery, a new bin will be allocated to the residence at no cost to the taxpayer.  
 
 
2.2.2 Loss, breakage and additional bins 
In case of loss, the taxpayer shall procure a new bin at his/her own expense. In case of breakage, a new bin is provided free of cost if the Municipality is responsible for the breakage (e.g. during waste removal, snow removal or maintenance roadwork). Requests for additional bins may be addressed to the Municipality, and the taxpayer shall pay the cost of the new bin. 
 
 
If the wheels, axle or lid of the bin are damaged in the course of everyday use, spare parts may be obtained from the public works department. 
 
 
2.2.3.   Exceptions 
Individuals living alone and unable to handle 360-litre bins may obtain smaller regulation bins (240 litres/65 gallons) upon application to the Municipality. 
 
 

3. Business, industry and institutions 

 
Businesses, industry and institution owners are responsible for the collection of recyclable material issuing from their activities.
 
If you have any questions or if you would like more information, please call (819) 827-1124 or by email m.marenger@chelsea.ca.
