For garbage, the maximum allowed at the curb is:

  • Three (3) bags, with a limit of 25 kilograms each,
  • or, One (1) 100-litre receptacle, with a limit of 25 kilograms,
  • or, One (1) 360-litre receptacle on wheels, with a limit of 135 kilograms.

Bin type

If you use store-bought bins that are greater than 100 litres, they will be too heavy to be picked up by hand by crews. You therefore need to buy a model with a European lifting grip as opposed to an American lifting grip. The American model is not equipped to be lifted by the lever at the back of the truck.
