Sherbrooke eco centres to reopen next week

Record Staff

As of Monday, April 27, the City of Sherbrooke will reopen the Rose-Cohen and Michel-Ledoux eco centres under certain conditions. The opening hours will be from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday to Saturday.
In order to facilitate social distancing measures, Instructions will be posted both inside and outside the sites and must be respected.
In order to limit traffic, access to the eco centres will be divided by days of the month.
Persons with an even-numbered civic address can visit the centre on even days of the month (2,4,6, etc.). Those residing at an odd-numbered civic address will have access to the eco centres on odd days of the month (the 1st-3-5, etc.).
Proof of residence will be required.
At all times, eco centre staff will ensure that the number of people present on the site is limited to respect the physical distance of two metres.
People visiting the eco centres must not present any symptoms (fever, cough, etc.) and a maximum of two people will be tolerated outside the car. Children must remain in the car at all times. Eco centre staff will not assist with unloading materials and there will be no loaning of equipment. Therefore, if people plan to need a shovel or broom to dispose of their materials, they should bring their own tools.
For the time being, hazardous materials will not be accepted in the eco centres and there will be no distribution of wood chips.
The Rose-Cohen ecocentre is located at 365, rue Pépin, in the borough of Les Nations, and the Michel-Ledoux ecocentre is located at 1000, rue Léon-Trépanier in the borough of Fleurimont.
