DATE TO BE CONFIRMED

Paper bags for green waste, garbage and recycling bins

Paper bags for green waste: If you want to dispose of your green leftovers like leaves in the fall, make sure to use paper bags designed for this purpose.

How to position your garbage and recycling bins?

  • In the courtyard entrance, at the edge of a street or on a sidewalk
  • The wheels to the residence, with lid closed and no objects on the bin
  • 1 meter away from any object, especially the car, to prevent breakage
  • When there are 2 trays, place them next to each other, one meter away
  • Never place trash on the floor next to the bin: they will not be picked up, except during special collections.
