Garbage pick up schedule

2019 Calendar


Door to door garbage pick up takes place every second Tuesday during the months of January, February, March, November and December. All other months garbage pick up is every Tuesday. It is important to have your cans at the road before 8:00 am.




Our garbage contractor, 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: 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 of any color EXCEPT BLUE 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. 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.
