The change to the collection schedule in winter began this week, so the collection on November 5 was only for recyclable materials as well as on December 3.
The Municipality of Canton de Hatley is increasing the frequency of organic waste collection to twice a month during the winter, from November to March. It also reduces ultimate waste collection to once a month.
The detailed schedule for 2021 will be sent out before the end of the year and will also be available on the website.
The purpose of these changes is to promote the recovery of residual materials and reduce waste for landfilling. The fundamental objective of the Quebec residual materials management policy is that “The only residual material disposed of in Quebec is the ultimate residue”.
