Collection schedule

Recyclable materials are collected weekly on Wednesdays throughout the year.

For the complete collection schedule, consult the calendar.

The collection takes place once weekly on MONDAYS throughout the year.

The Terra residential project (Frédéric-Back Street) is equipped with semi-buried containers (Moloks) for the collection of residues. For this reason, the collection schedule for this project differs from the collection schedule for the other sectors of Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue.

Note: It is important to fold the boxes that you put in the recycling container to avoid blocking the space unnecessarily, which may not leave enough room in the container for other residents who wish to dispose of their recyclable materials.
