Changes in waste collection
From April 30 to November 26, green waste is not accepted during household waste pick-ups. During this period, there is a special pick-up for branches and green waste on Mondays every 2 weeks.
Branches are no longer accepted in the collection waste. The transport of firewood out of the restricted area is also prohibited.
Green waste can also be deposited at ecocentres Marie-Victorin in Longueuil and Grande Allée in Brossard outside the municipal collection periods provided for this purpose. Citizens are also encouraged to use the services of ecocentres Marie-Victorin and Grande Allée to properly dispose of the branches and trunks of trees. The volume of material must not exceed 2.5 cubic meters per visit.
Sound waste management contributes to improving the quality of our environment. In addition to reducing the amount of waste sent to landfills, recycling also reduces the cost of household waste collection.
- Place your gray bin after 8 p.m. the day before pick-up and no later than 7 a.m. the day itself.
- The bin must be placed with the wheels facing the residence.
- Place your bin approximately one metre (3 feet) away from the curb, so as not to block the sidewalk.
- Do not overload the bin. The total weight of the bin and its contents must not exceed 90 kg (200 lbs).
- Keep the lid closed and make sure the bin does not overflow.
In Greenfield Park, household waste is picked up on Wednesday.
In Saint-Hubert, household waste is picked up on Tuesday.
In Vieux-Longueuil, household waste is picked up on Tuesday in the sectors west of chemin de Chambly and on Friday in the sectors east of chemin de Chambly (including both sides of chemin de Chambly).

To prevent problems and nuisances, it is recommended that garbage not be accumulated over several weeks.

They must be tied in bundles of no more than 30 cm (12 inches) or placed in containers.
When it comes to residential buildings having between four and fifty dwellings and non-residential buildings having between one and three floors, waste and recyclables must be stored inside the building or outside in a container, a storage building or a recycling bin depending on the case.

Additional information on waste storage: Direction de l'aménagement et de l'urbanisme.
The bins are city property and must remain at the address to which they have been assigned (by serial number). You can identify your bins by marking your address on them. You are responsible for your bins and, as such, you must pay to have them replaced. The use of the bin is restricted to its intended purpose.
Clean your bin occasionally, and sprinkle it with baking soda regularly to control odours without harming the environment.
If you move, you must leave the bins at your current address.
