Garbage Collection

The contents of your garbage collection should be what remains after the selective collections. Therefore, this fraction of waste must not contain recyclable and / or organic materials.

Collection Day

The garbage collections take place once a week on Thursdays starting at 7:00 am.

General Instructions

The garbage collection is mechanised, therefore in order for your bin to be picked up, it is IMPORTANT to follow the following rules:

  • The black bin should be placed at the end of the driveway with the wheels facing the house and the cover should be closed but unlocked;
  • No items placed next to the bin will be picked up and the cover must be closed;
  • The bin should be placed at the curb only after 6:00 pm the evening before the collection or before 7:00 am at the latest the day of the collection.
Where should bins be set out?

The municipality would like to point out that it is very important, on garbage collection days, to place your wheeled bins on your property (not placed in the street) to facilitate snow removal and eliminate the risk of breakage. Waste collection bins must be positioned on your property in the driveway entrance, without however encroaching on the public road.

IMPORTANT : When left on the streets or on the sidewalk, the garbage, recycling and organic bins interfere with snow removal operations and branch pick up. To avoid slowing down these operations, it is important to place the bins inside the edge of your property.

Who owns the bin?

The bins are the property of the Village of Senneville. Each bin has a serial number associated to an address. When moving, it must remain at the address where it was delivered.
