Wheeled bins

Instructions 

  • Wheeled bins must be placed one metre from the street (not in the street or on the sidewalk), one metre from cars, buildings or other objects and at least 50 cm from each other, with the wheels on the side of your residence.
  • Wheeled bins cannot be left at the curb between Friday at 8:00 p.m. and Sunday at 4:00 p.m.
  • Wheeled bins must not interfere with snow removal or street cleaning.
  • Wheeled bins are the property of the City. Each roll-out bin has a serial number associated with an address. They should therefore not be interchanged with those of the neighbors. The owner must write their address on the roll-out bin.
  • Wheeled bins shall not be stored in a front yard or side yard except as provided for in the by-law.
  • No residue or bags of garbage shall be placed beside or on the wheeled bins and the lids shall be closed.
  • Black bins and brown bins must be placed at a safe distance from each other, such as at each end of your parking lot, so that the mechanical arm of the truck does not drop the other bin.
  • Dusty residues or those that can easily be blown away during decanting should be placed in a bag before being placed in the bins.
  • There is no recycling collection at Christmas, Boxing Day and New Year's Day.
  • There is no garbage and food waste collection at Christmas or New Year's Day.
  • Failure to follow some of these instructions may result in the wheeled bin not being picked up and may result in fines.

Bin placement – Multi-unit residential buildings

  • Bins must be placed in the driveway, not in the street or on the sidewalk.
  • In summer, they may be lined up at the edge of the property, next to the street.
  • In winter, to allow for snow removal, they must be lined up in the driveway, perpendicular to the street and all on the same side, with the wheels toward the building.
