Get details about food waste collections

Last updated November 7, 2022

Collection schedules, accepted materials, materials that are not accepted and types of bins that are allowed. Find out how to put out table scraps according to standards.

Food waste is collected in 15 boroughs. 

In four boroughs (Lachine, Île-Bizard–Sainte-Geneviève, Pierrefonds-Roxboro et Saint-Laurent), this collection is replaced by the organic waste collection, where green waste is also picked up. 

If food waste collection is available for your type of building, you must participate and no longer put your kitchen scraps in your household waste. 

You’ll be helping to reduce the amount of garbage that goes to the landfill and preserve the environment, since food waste makes up 57 percent of the contents of a garbage bag.

To avoid being fined, be sure to follow collection schedules and obey all legislation.
