A contractor picks up the recyclable materials along the streets every Monday, even on statutory holidays, except on December 25 and January 1 when the pickup is cancelled. 

The bins must be placed on the property, near the sidewalk or at the curb, or between the ditch and the roadway, in front of the collection unit, after 7 p.m. on the eve of the collection day, and must be retrieved by its owner before 7 p.m. on collection day. The wheels must be turned toward the building and the lid must be closed.

Because the pickup of the bins is mechanized, no items deposited outside of the green wheeled bin (cardboards, paper bags, etc.) are picked up.

It is not necessary to separate paper and cardboard from other materials. Each single-family dwelling and each multi-dwelling building of less than eight units (duplex, triplex, etc.) has a green wheeled bin of 120, 240, or 360 litres, which was delivered by the City of Dorval. Consequently, it is prohibited to use your 64-litre blue box for recycling purposes.

Recycling bins remain the property of the City and must be left behind if you move. In the event of loss or damage, the bin will be replaced by the Public Works Department. Proof of residence in Dorval will be required to obtain another.
