New Methods for Collecting Waste

In order to increase the rate of recycling and, in so doing, work toward meeting the Government's objective of reducing the amount of landfilled garbage by 65%, the Verdun Borough adopted new methods for collecting waste—by sector—back in October 2008.

Collections by sector

Garbage and recycling collections are carried out on the same day. Borough territory is divided into four sectors and each sector has its own collection day.

When to place outside

Residents must put out their garbage and recyclables for the collections between 10 p.m. the day before and 8 a.m. the day of the collection, except on rue Wellington and rue de l’Église, where the time frame is between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Tuesdays.

Collection schedule
The collection schedules for July to December 2011 and for January to June 2012 are available in PDF format below as well as in printed form at the following locations:

Different containers for garbage, recycling and green waste

Different coloured containers are used to separate the various types of waste. It is important to remember that recycling has been compulsory in the Verdun Borough since 2004.

  • Garbage - Black roll-out containers (compulsory in Sector 1), black bags or garbage cans with a lid (Sectors 2, 3 & 4)

  • Recyclables -  Blue roll-out containers* (compulsory in Sector 1), blue bags (Sectors 2, 3, 4)

  • Green waste - (during green waste collection periods only): orange or see-through bags

* Please note that it is also possible for residents of Sectors 2, 3 & 4, whose type of building qualifies them for doing so, to obtain a blue roll-out container from the Borough, by phoning 514 765-VERT (8378) or 311.

Pilot Project for Certain Households on 4e and 5e avenues

On June 22, 2009, Ville de Montréal introduced a new collection tool to help increase the volume of recyclables collected as well as improve cleanliness on the streets. In order to test its durability and reliability, this tool was tested in 3,000 households located in the boroughs of Côte-des-Neiges—Notre-Dame-de-Grâce, Le Plateau Mont-Royal and Verdun in order to evaluate its durability and reliability.

This pilot project came to an end in September 2010; nevertheless, residents on these avenues may continue using this collection tool, if they wish. However, if it gets lost or broken, it won't be replaced and no new requests for this type of container or "bin" will be accepted.

The Verdun Borough wishes to thank residents who took part in the pilot project to test this new collection tool.

Ville de Montréal is currently working on a new pilot project. The residents concerned will be notified as soon as we have details of this new project.
