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.


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 5:00 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.

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.

Waste Reduction Strategy

Beaconsfield residents rank second as producers of domestic waste per capita on the island of Montreal. More than 50% of our domestic waste could be diverted from landfills.

To address the problem at the source, the City is proposing a Waste Reduction Strategy based on five key elements. The City's goal is to reduce the quantity of waste sent to landfill.

The City will take into account the results of the pilot project and residents' feedback to finalize the Strategy.

The pilot project on the incentive tariff approach, currently underway with 253 residents, is one of the elements analyzed by the City as part of the Waste Reduction Strategy. The goal of the pilot project is to test this approach.

Encouraging home composting is one of the five elements that are part of the proposed Waste Reduction Strategy.

 Grasscycling and leaf mulching are also part of the proposed strategy. Both activities, in addition to saving time, help reduce discarded organic material and the cost of collection, transportation and treatment.

 The City offers options to help you dispose of your waste responsibly. Note that green residue collections will increase from 8 to 22 in 2015, from April to November. Before throwing it away, think of the 3Rs!

Recycling grass is easy to do, it consists of leaving cut grass on the lawn after mowing the lawn. The result is reduced lawn maintenance and decreased fertilization and watering costs. Cut grass decomposes within two or three days leaving no trace behind. It is a natural fertilizer and speeds up decomposition of stubble. Recycling grass is a simple and effective way or maintaining your lawn and protecting our environment!

Benefits of grasscycling

There are many reasons to be a herbicycler!  6 Good reasons:

  • For the environment: The grass clippings are an importance source of methane (CH4). By decomposing in landfill in the absence of oxygen, they produce biogases which contribute to increase greenhouse gas emissions. The methane is 21 times more powerful than carbon dioxide (CO2).
  • To save on fertilizer purchase: Provide nutritive elements (mainly nitrogen) for the lawn through the decomposition of the cut grass;
  • To humidify the lawn:  hydrate the soil naturally and protect it against drought, because grass wastes contain a large amount of water; 90 % Water by weight
  • To strengthen the lawn: nourish the micro-organisms that are beneficial to the soil and which help to decompose the thatch.
  • To reduce the volume of your waste, which reduces pollution associated with grass decomposing in landfill.  
  • To save time: no time wasted on collecting and bagging grass clippings.  Greatly reduce the volume of garbage that will end up in landfill;
