To sign up for the composting program, you must complete the form (see link below) and submit it to the municipal office or contact Mr. Marcel Danis, program superintendant, at 819-456-2161, extension 2282, or by email at  egout@villelapeche.qc.ca.

For us to gain an overall picture of people who do home composting, we invite residents who have not taken advantage of the municipal program to let us know, either by email (by sending their contact information and all relevant details about their composting method) at aidetp@villelapeche.qc.ca or by phone at 819-456-2161, extension 2287.
