Organic Waste Pickup
Single-family dwellings, multi-dwelling buildings of less than
8 units, businesses in the residential sector, and institutions (schools, churches, etc.) benefit from an organic waste pickup.
Organic waste is made up of two large categories:
* We recommend these two methods to dispose of food waste:
Line your small kitchen bin with used newspaper or a paper bag, and fill it with organic waste. Wrap the newspaper into a secure bundle or close the bag tightly, and transfer it to your brown bin.
Line your brown bin with a larger paper bag. Place organic material directly into your small kitchen bin. Transfer the loose material into your lined brown bin. Close your brown bin bag tightly.
→ The use of newspapers or paper bags in the bins is not mandatory, but it is strongly recommended for sanitary reasons.
Green waste may be deposited in the organic waste bin. It is possible to dispose of surplus green waste in other containers (e.g. an empty garbage can). We recommend, however, using biodegradable containers, such as paper bags and cardboard boxes, which will also be picked up. Green waste must not be deposited in bulk at the curb.
Please note that multi-dwelling buildings of 8 units or more benefit from a green waste pickup during the months of April to November inclusive. For the details of that pickup, click here.
