Free service

Compo Recycle offers the “Your oldies, My goodies” module to promote reusing goods that might otherwise end up in a landfill, or be recycled before the end of their useful life.

Goods must not be sold

All articles, without exception, must be given, not sold. If you wish to sell goods, you may do so by using newspaper classified ads, web bidding sites, or any other usual means. All transactions involving the exchange of money or goods will be deleted by Compo Recycle without any further notice and, in case of recurrence, Compo Recycle reserves the right to suspend any further use of its module by the non-complying user.

Purpose of the module

This module intends to be complementary to other means available to give reusable goods. We invite you to refer to the Spring Matières à réflexion, or your municipality’s website, to find local organizations that put to good use reusable goods in your community.


The module is intended mainly for citizens of Compo Recycle’s client municipalities. Businesses and organizations are welcome as well. The number of ads is unlimited. The service is free. The goods must be given. However, only persons with the legal authority to conclude transactions may use the module. In particular, the module is not available to minors or users whose registration has been suspended due to fraudulent use of the service, or use that is contrary to the terms and conditions described in this paragraph. If you do not qualify, please abstain from using our service.
