The food waste collection started in the borough of CDN-NDG in 2016, by the NDG neighbourhood. In 2017, it will reach the Côte-des-Neiges neighbourhood. Here is the relevant information:
- Map of the targeted area and schedule (starting May 5th)
- Equipment to be delivered and instructions
- Official pamphlet (accepted and refused materials, tips)
Targeted buildings are those containing 8 or fewer units: single-family houses, duplexes, triplexes and small buildings with 4-8 units. Éco-quartier Côte-des-Neiges employees will perform door-to-door visits there in March and April 2017, in order to present the new collection and to answer questions. The equipment will be delivered between April 10th and 28th.
In the new sector, the Food Waste Collection will officially begin on Friday May 5th, 2017 and will replace the Friday household waste (garbage) collection. In buildings with 9 or more units (which are not served by the new collection), household waste pickup will continue twice a week.
Notice to managers of buidings with 4-8 residential units: if you think that the food waste management would be easier with a large brown bin with wheels, instead of several small individual brown bins, please contact us.
Notice to managers to managers of buildings with 9 residential units or more: if the recyclable materials and garbage management is outstanding in your building and if you are interested in participating to the new Food Waste Collection, it is possible to register by contacting us. An onsite evaluation will be required.
To see the global perspective, please see the implementation calendar for the whole borough, which covers the 2016-2019 period.
