Instead of simply throwing away old objects you no longer use, we invite you to help preserve our environment by giving them to organizations that specialize in their reuse.

In Dorval, many businesses dedicate their work to the reuse of discarded objects, and residents can bring them their used objects, such as books, appliances, computers, furniture, toys, sports equipment, and so forth. In some cases, the organization can even, on call, provide a pickup service.

The following is a list of organizations in Dorval dedicated to the reuse of discarded objects. Before dropping an item off, please verify with them that your object will be accepted.

The City of Montreal has created a very practical index on the 4 R's (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, and Recover). This magazine, called Consommer autrement, is also featured on the Internet (in French only). In all, hundreds of objects and addresses are listed on this incredible data base on reuse.
