COVID-19: Please note that completion time may be extended due to social and sanitary rules.

Every year there are two branch collection periods, one in the spring and another in autumn. The period for spring pick-up starts in April until mid-June. The pick-up in autumn starts in September until the end of October.

BRANCH COLLECTION SPRING 2020

Public Works will start free branch pick-up and chipping on April 27. There will be two (2) collections in each sector, however certain rules apply:

  1. Branches must be by the side of the road no later than 7 a.m. the first day of collection in your sector.
  2. Your branches should be piled on your property, the large ends towards the road. The diameter of the branches must not exceed 15 cm (6 in).
  3. Once a collection has taken place in a given sector, branches put out too late will not be taken until the next collection, if one is scheduled, or wait until the end of the moratorium, August 31, to bring branches to the Public Works drop-off site.
  4. During branch collections, we do not pick up roots, stumps, logs, vines, bamboo or branches FROM A FELLED TREE.
  5. Under no circumstances should branches be left in the City’s green spaces.

 

SPECIAL PICKUPS

  1. You can dispose of the items listed in point 4 at Public Works after August 31, or you can request a special pickup at any time for a minimum fee of $100.
  2. If you miss the free branch collection, you can request FOR BRANCHES ONLY a special onsite chipping service for a minimum fee of $60.

 

In order to comply with the Ministerial Order regarding the EAB, the City will no longer pick up branches of all tree species with the regular garbage collection. Garbage bins must not contain any branches. Bundles of branches placed next to your garbage bin will no longer be collected. These can be disposed of at Public Works or you may request a special pick-up for which there is a minimum fee of $100 after September 30.

At all times, it is forbidden to burn branches, leaves or other green residue outdoors, whether on public or private property (sect. 4.23, BEAC-033 – By-law on nuisances).

Please note that the branch collection may take, depending on the sector, between 7 and 10 days.
