Special Waste Collection

Branch collection

The city usually organizes two branch collections every year in spring and fall.

Dates of the next collection

Branch collections generally last two weeks. The next collection will begin on May 10, 2021. Citizens wishing to avail themselves of this collection must place their branches on the curb no later than Sunday, May 9, regardless of the electoral district where they live.

Fall 2021 collection will begin the day after Thanksgiving on Tuesday, October 12.

If you missed collection, you have two options:

  • Drop off your branches at the ecocentre;
  • request a special collection for a fee.

City personnel will cross the territory during this period to collect branches. 

Residents will be informed if the branch collection lasts longer than two weeks.
