The City of Laval’s mobile eco-centre, which collects hazardous household waste and other materials for safe disposal or recycling, will be resuming its activities on Sunday following a suspension during the COVID-19 crisis.
According to the city, the mobile unit will be set up on June 7 from 8:30 am to 3 pm at 1333 Chomedey Blvd. (this is the main site, behind city hall) for the collection of hazardous chemicals, tires, branches, old air conditioners and obsolete electronics.
As well, the mobile eco-centre will be at 480 Armand Frappier Blvd. (a secondary site), where only tires, branches, air conditioners, electronics and computers will be accepted. (No hazardous waste.)
The city emphasizes that both operations will be taking place with strict protective measures against COVID-19 to be respected:
- Wearing a face mask is highly recommended;
- Physical distancing of at least 2 metres is mandatory between all people on the site;
- Unloading of materials will be done by just one person;
- And everyone must remain in their vehicle.
As well, anyone with symptoms of COVID-19 will be automatically turned away. And if you’re not in a hurry to dispose of materials, it is recommended you wait for the next time the mobile eco-centre is around.
