Residential buildings of 9 units or more, or which are part of an integrated project are eligible for weekly collection from containers for garbage and for recyclable materials.
Note: The rental or purchase of container(s) is at the expense of the owner or the condominium association.
Minimum ratio for the storage of waste materials
The By-Law on Waste Management (Regulation REG-126)
requires a ratio of at least 0.25 cubic yards (yd3)
per occupied unit (per dwelling) of which at least half must be reserved for recyclable materials. For example, a building of 30 apartments must provide two containers of 8 cubic yards: One container for garbage and a second for recyclable materials.

As of May 1, 2017, the weekly collection days for containers will change, since a new contract will enter into force with the RCI Environment company.
Garbage Collection from Containers
Recycling collection Container collection
(For all buildings served).
A collection did not take place?
Contact Services Brossard at 450 923-6311 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org to report an omission, any time after the end of the collection period. If it concerns a wheeled bin, leave it outside the building (except on the weekend), because a truck could return the next day.
Containers must be accessible between 7 a.m. and 8 p.m. on collection days
Containers must be accessible to the collection truck in all seasons and at any time during collection days. If access is difficult because of snow, an obstacle (vehicle, bulky item, etc.) or for any other reason, waste materials cannot be picked up. They will be only picked up during the next collection. If collection is necessary before the following week, this collection will be at the owner's expense.
Surplus garbage placed beside containers is not picked up;
The lid of the container must remain closed; no bulky or large object should be placed in the container.
Access to containers must be free of any obstacle (vehicle, bulky item, etc.) and the pavement must be deiced in winter. Garbage trucks are very heavy and can easily skid.
During the winter season, containers, enclosures and storage buildings must be cleared of snow and ice in order to allow the contractor to remove and return the container to its original location.
In addition, the doors of the enclosures or storage building must be able to open fully, so as to enable the collection truck to manoeuvre.
If your equipment is fitted with latches or locks, it is important that they be deiced on collection days so the operator can open or unlock them.
Bulky items must not be placed in the containers for safety reasons.
Here are links to municipal services offered for bulky items:
Electronic products such as televisions and computers must not be placed in the containers.
