Collection and Management of Domestic Waste

The citizens of Frelighsburg have access to a door-to-door collection service for recyclable, compostable and household waste.

Collection is always done alternately every two weeks for the blue and brown bins. The green bin is collected once a month depending on your sector. To view the 2024 collection calendar, click here:

You can get the wheeled bins at the Town Hall:
360-litre wheeled bins are available at a price of $100 (taxes included).
To order, inquire by calling 450-298-5133 ext. 125.

PLEASE NOTE: Recycling bins (blue) and composting bins (brown) are the property of the Municipality and must remain at the address of the building even if you move house.


To allow for a clean and safe garbage collection, we ask that you follow the following guidelines (Inform your tenants and visitors, if applicable):

  • The use of green garbage bins is mandatory
  • Drop off your bins the evening before collection
  • the bins must be placed so that the opening of the lid points towards the street, according to the instructions printed on the top of the lid. They must be placed as close as possible to the street and must not be too close to poles, mailboxes and your other bin (leave a space of about one metre (40 inches)
  • Do not place waste / recyclables on the cover or next to the bin
  • Clean your bin regularly (to counter odours)
  • Make sure your bin is sturdy and in good order
  • Bulky and oversized items are not collected
  • Do not throw away your dangerous items
  • Review the list of items to drop off at the ECOCENTRE:
  • Biomedical waste must be disposed of in places specifically authorized for this purpose. Most pharmacies accept expired medications.
  • Tires, used oils and paints are collected by certain businesses in the region


You are invited to consult the Ecocitizen’s Guide by the MRC de Brome-Missisquoi.


Following a decision by the municipal council taken in 2022, the municipality stopped offering the home collection service for large waste items. To get rid of bulky items and construction, renovation and demolition materials, you can do so at the Cowansville ecocentre.


There are two glass containers located in the parking lot at 47 Main Street, to the right of the gas station.
