HHW Collection service modification
June 11, 2021

The Municipality of La Pêche would like to inform the public that the hazardous household waste (HHW) collection scheduled on the week of July 12 is cancelled and will be provided through other means this fall. Only tires with no rims will be collected, and from residences only. The municipal team is currently working on this alternative solution and will announce the details shortly.

Unfortunately, the current collection method doesn’t comply with the federal Transportation of Dangerous Goods Act and the provincial Regulation respecting hazardous materials . In order to comply with the Act and in response to health and safety issues raised by transloading station employees during HHW collection weeks and for the delivery of such waste by contractors, service modifications were required.

Regular waste collection scheduled for the same week (July 12-16) will go ahead as planned. As a reminder, waste is being collected every week from June 7 to September 3.
