Domestic waste collection


As of May 1, 2017, collection of household garbage will take place Wednesdays or Thursdays depending on your section, as follows:
Residents in section 1, including sections east of Taschereau  (A - B - C - I - J - L - M - N - O - X - Y)
Weekly collection on Wednesday
Residents in section 2, including sections west of Taschereau (P - R - S - T - V - W)
Weekly collection on Thursday

The City invites the population to find out more by downloading and consulting this new calendar​

When there is a change in the regular schedule due to a public holiday, a notice will be posted on our website and social media. During the summer, the number of trucks is increased. Pickup times may therefore vary.

IMPORTANT: put it out after 8 p.m. on the day prior to collection or before 7 a.m. on the day itself


You should place your domestic waste on the curbside in accordance with the following instructions:

Use metal or plastic containers:
  • with handles and a cover
  • with a maximum capacity of 100 litres (20 gallons)
  • with a maximum weight of 25 kg for manual lifting and 100 kg for mechanical liftin​
Use of wheeled bins.

The City does not provide garbage collection receptacles. If you purchase a wheeled bin, please make sure that:
  • it has a maximum capacity of 240 or 360 litres
  • it is a colour other than blue (preferably black or charcoal gray)
  • it is equipped with a European grip with three grooves beneath the cover (see image)
