LEAVES COLLECTION

The leaf collection is scheduled every Friday from October 23 to November 20. An additional collection is scheduled for the spring,  Monday, May 25, 2020.

Important note:  Plastic bags are no longer allowed  to hold dead leaves. Therefore, plastic bags will not be picked up during leaf collection.

Three ways of disposing of dead leaves:

  1. Leaves must be stacked  in paper bags for yard waste  and deposited at the curb starting at 7 p.m. the day before leaf collection, or no later than 7 a.m. on the morning of collection.
  2. The City also encourages its citizens to  use their brown bin  to dispose of dead leaves and other green residues such as excess grass, roots, plants, small branches, shavings, conifer needle bark. Please note! Do not fill the brown bin with soil or compost, as this would make it too heavy and damage it during mechanical collection. The collection of organic waste takes place every Monday; until 30 November and every other week thereafter.
  3. Citizens may  practice leaf cycling (feuillicyclage) . Learn more about this method, which consists of mowing dead leaves and leaving them on the ground rather than scraping them or pick up with a rake : https://www.recyc-quebec.gouv.qc.ca/citoyens/matieres-organiques/herbicyclage
