New schedule for waste materials collection beginning April 3
Beginning April 3, all collection trucks will be fueled by biodiesel, as part of our ongoing commitment to practices rooted in sustainable development. This will lead to a significant reduction in the amount of greenhouse gases produced. The new system will lead to changes in collection schedules and types of bin, with increases in some collections.
|CURRENT SCHEDULE||BEGINNING APRIL 3|
|Pick-up period||Between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m.||Between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m.|
|Waste materials at curbside||Between 9 p.m. the night before and 7 p.m. the morning of the collection||Between 9 p.m. the night before and 7 p.m. the morning of the collection|
|Organic materials||Every Tuesday||Every Monday|
|Recyclable materials||Every Tuesday||Every Monday|
|Household waste||Every other Wednesday, alternating between sectors A and B||Every other Tuesday, alternating between sectors A and B|
The new contract for collection and transportation of residual materials may lead to changes in pickup times. It’s important to put your bin or containers out before the collection period begins at 7 a.m.
Adjustments will probably take place throughout the first weeks, so please wait until the end of the day before advising Public Works that your waste materials have not been picked up.
Here are specific instructions for each collection.

All of these changes will enable us to limit our greenhouse gas emissions by using biodiesel fuel from mid-April to mid-November and regular diesel during the rest of the year.
This initiative, along with many others, is part of our ongoing commitment to sustainable development.
