Frequently asked questions (FAQ)

Garbage collection is now every two weeks at all times, as the city seeks to implement solutions to optimize the management of household waste, and thus improve our community's environmental impact.

In Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue, only 43% of residual waste generated is recovered. By 2025, our goal is to have 70% of residual materials recycled.

The City no longer provides residents with garbage bins (black ones). Residents would need to get their own bins.

Rinse your bin with soap, baking soda or a solution of white vinegar and water.

The size of wheeled bins for household waste collection is of 120, 240 or 360 liters. Waste placed in any other bin will not be collected. *

*Your garbage bags must be placed in the closed bin.
