WHAT IS IT?

Garbage is non-recyclable waste that cannot be disposed using the recycling services or collections provided by the City. You can put your garbage in a sealed plastic bag inside the garbage bin. For example, garbage includes: scrap and non-recyclable materials, meat carcasses, fatty cuts of meat, waste of animal, disposable diapers, soiled non-recyclable packaging including toys where batteries have been removed.

COLLECTION

Garbage is picked up Thursdays (except statutory holidays) from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. The bin should be put out by the curb after 9:00 p.m. the night before or before 7:00 a.m. the day of the collection. Make sure to take the bin back from the curb the same day before 11:00 p.m.

Overlooked bin? 

Make sure collection instructions were followed: day and time, bin position, accepted container, container weight, accepted materials, etc. 

If all instructions were followed, report the situation to Public Works the same evening after 7 p.m. or before 10:30 a.m. the next day. 
Requests received after 10:30 a.m. the day following the collection will not be processed.
