The advantages are numerous:

  • Any problem can be identified in real-time and resolved, possibly, the same day.
  • The transponders installed on the bins allow the City to ensure their traceability.
  • The flexibility of this system allows us to offer a weekly collection service and not only every two weeks. You can use it according to your needs.
  • Thanks to your efforts, you are helping to reduce the cost of the collection service.


Why put the blue bin at the curb only when it is full?

  • To reduce GHGs
  • To reduce costs

The less frequently you put it out, the more we will save!

We wish to acknowledge the valuable cooperation of all residents. Your help allows us to move forward with this new initiative.

sac vert nespressoRecyling of Nespresso Coffee Capsules 

An agreement for the recyling of capsules was concluded between Nespresso and the TIRU sorting center which serves Beaconsfield. In order to recycle these capsules, residents must put them in the green bag provided by Nespresso. 

How it works

To recycle capsules, residents must place their used capsules in the green recycling bag provided for this purpose. A bag is included with each online capsule order placed on the Nespresso website. To make sure the capsules can be correctly sorted, it is imperative that they be placed in the bag; capsules place directly in the recycling bin will not be recycled.
Once recycled, the capsules will be sorted at the TIRU sorting center then shipped to the 2M Ressources facility, where the coffee grounds will be separated from the aluminum. These two materials will then be recycled and reused.



Pick the right collection

  • Recyc-Québec has a tool that allows you to find the appropriate collection by material.
  • Available in both languages, and also as a smart phone application, the “Ça va où ?” (“Where does it go?”) tool provides a search engine by municipality recyc-quebec.gouv.qc.ca/points-de-recuperation


NEW! You can now recycle your oral care products

New recycling centre for the West Island

The Agglomeration of Montreal has opened a new sorting centre for recycled materials in Lachine. It is one of the most efficient in North America, which will greatly improve the quality of the materials sorted, and increase the reuse of materials locally. Collections from Beaconsfield’s blue bins are delivered to this new recycling centre since October 31.

  • Plastic containers are turned into plastic lumber that can be used to create furniture.
  • Paper is turned into recycled fibres that can produce food packaging, tissues, egg cartons, etc.
  • Cardboard is turned into packaging (corrugated boxes, containers,paper products, etc.)
  • Glass is turned into ecomaterials.
    • Ex: Éco Entreprises Québec has developed markets for recycled abrasives, cement additives, and mineral wool.
