Residual materials (composting, recycling and waste)




Please note that since January 2009, all municipalities must bury the waste collected in a technical landfill as required by the Government of Quebec. The cost of landfill will be billed according to the number of tonnes of landfilled waste. Also, in order to reduce the municipal bill, the City of Percé urges you to conscientiously recycle and compost your organic materials.

Collection of garbage, recyclable and compostable materials

The collection of household and commercial garbage, recyclable materials, compostable materials, as well as the collection of large refuse are carried out by the Intermunicipal board for the treatment of residual materials of Gaspésie (RITMRG).

For all information concerning these collections, please contact the RITMRG directly at: 418-385-4200 or at
