Pilot project

Garbage bins are only distributed in one sector of the borough, bounded :

  • to the north, by Souligny Avenue (excluded)
  • to the east, by Haig Avenue (excluded)
  • to the south, by the St. Lawrence River
  • to the west, by Rougemont Avenue

This is a trial to see if using standard bins improves the waste collection process and offers a better service.

The collection day does not change.
