Maximum allowed

For garbage, the maximum allowed at a time is one rolling bin, with a limit of 25 kg.

If I have excess garbage, can I leave it in bags next to the black bin?

No, you cannot place garbage bags on the side, as the City will not collect them. Estimates show that about 80 percent of household waste is either recyclable (blue bin) or compostable (brown bin). Only 20 percent is residual waste (black bin). Remember, if you need a larger blue bin or brown bin, the City will exchange it for free.

What goes in the black bin?

The black bin should be used only for waste that cannot be reused, recycled, or composted. In general, this is solid, non-hazardous waste that can’t be recycled or composted and is not accepted by organizations whose mission is to give a second life to certain objects.

What should I do with bulky waste?

Bulky waste should continue to placed at the curb on Fridays. See the list of accepted bulky
waste items at

Where do I place my black bin for the collection?

On collection day, be sure to place your black bin at the curb, and at least 1 metre away from other bins, cars or other objects. Do not place your bin on the sidewalk or street. Make sure the wheels are facing towards the house. Make sure the lid is fully closed.
