Composting is only permitted using composting bins equipped with a lid. The composting bin must be placed in your back yard, in an area that, where the side walls of the main building extend in the direction of the back yard, would fall within the boundaries of these walls. Furthermore, this area must be at least 3 metres from all property lines. Composting bins cannot be seen from a public thoroughfare.
Composting bins are available at a cost of $20 at the Citizens’ Office (777, boulevard Marcel-Laurin) or the Éco-quartier de Saint-Laurent (685, boul. Décarie, bureau 100).
