Collection of items containing halocarbons
The MRC of Vaudreuil-Soulanges has been a member of the FrigoResponsable ™️ program since 2013 and thus contributes to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and protecting the ozone layer.
Entrusted to a <a href="http://www.freezponsible.ca/en" target="_blank" rel="noopener">FrigoResponsable ™️</a> recycler, up to 96% of the components of refrigeration appliances are recycled. The process used captures and ensures the destruction of 99.99% of the halocarbons contained in the insulating foams and the cooling system.
Thanks to this program, 1,570 devices were recycled in 2019, thus avoiding the release of 1,250 equivalent tonnes of CO2 into the atmosphere.
Two drop-off points are available on the territory of the MRC: the ecocentre in Vaudreuil-Dorion and the Carrefour de l'Espoir organization. In addition, the Carrefour de l'Espoir organization offers an on-call device collection service for all citizens of the MRC.
