Garbage pick up schedule

Door to door garbage pick up takes place every Tuesday morning. It is important to have your cans road side before 7:00 am.

 

ACCEPTABLE GARBAGE CONTAINERS

 

Our garbage contractor, Recy Compact, must comply with health and safety standards to protect its workers. The drivers regularly have the lids of wooden garbage boxes fall on their heads, have their fingers jammed or discover intruders inside these boxes (a skunk, raccoon, rat or cat…) For this reason, only the following containers for garbage will be accepted as of July 24: Acceptable containers include a closed, rigid garbage pail with a maximum capacity of 100 liters, with rigid handles; a garbage bin with wheels with a 240 to 360 liter capacity or plastic garbage bags that are securely closed. Any container that may present a risk when handled, that may split open or that is damaged will not be emptied.

 

The following containers are not acceptable: recycling bins used for garbage; wooden, metal or plastic boxes; small or large barrels either with or without a lid and either with or without handles. As of July 24, these containers and the following will no longer be emptied: wheelbarrows, tractor shovels, the box on pick-up trucks, trailers, etc. used to hold garbage. If a container under 20 liters capacity is used to hold garbage, both the garbage and the container will be thrown into the garbage truck, such as central vacuum canisters, 5 gallon or small kitchen garbage containers placed by the road, etc.
