Residual waste

Bulk items

Free and fee-based home collection or drop-off at the municipal yard

In Kirkland, there are several options for citizens to dispose of their bulky items. There's the on-site collection, free of charge on specific dates or fee-based pick-ups at all times. Bulky items can also be dropped-off at the municipal yard for a fee of $10 per cubic yard.

Free pick-ups

(for all bulky items INCLUDING construction/renovation materials)


  • Spring:  April 23 to May 14
  • Fall:  September 6 to October 1 
The free pick-up service is carried out every week from Monday* morning at 7:30 am to Friday afternoon at 3:00 pm during the periods mentioned above. The crew takes a different route every time, so in order not to miss them when they're in your area, items that need to be discarded must be placed at the curbside before 7:00 am on Monday* morning of that week.   * (or Tuesday in case of a holiday)

First Tuesday of the month - free  pick-up
(for bulky items EXCLUDING construction/renovation materials):

  • On the first Tuesday of the month (EXCEPT in May and October)
To take advantage of this monthly pick-up, items that need to be discarded must be placed at the curbside before 7:00 am on the first Tuesday of the month.  Please note that construction/renovation debris (rocks, stone, earth, sand, concrete...) cannot be accepted in the free monthly pick-up. For that, you must refer to the free weekly pick-up periods or request a fee-based collection.

Fee-based Pick-up
(for all bulky items INCLUDING construction/renovation materials):

If the free scheduled periods for bulk pick-up are not convenient for you, service is available year round for a fee, as follows:
- Minimum fee of $25 / cubic yard ;
- Maximum fee of $150 per trip, for a full truckload.
These fees are set according to By-Law No 98-55 respecting tariffs.
For a fee estimate, you can either submit your request through the Requests on Line system or by calling 514 630-2727 during regular business hours.
