The new food waste collection is in full swing in NDG. Residents are putting out their brown bins every Thursday & Friday (depening on which part of the borough that they are in). The amount of garbage put out has been drastically reduced by the new food waste program, great news for the environment!
The Éco-quartier NDG staff noticed many leaf bags put out with the food waste bins. We just wanted to remind residents that in CDN- NDG, garden waste is collected on a different day (Wednesdays) from the food waste (Thursday or Friday). Green waste and food waste are brought to different sites (green waste is composted in St Michel while food waste is sent off the island of Montreal until the biomethanization factories are built to process the food collected – expected in 2019).
If you have any questions about the food waste program, please do not hesitate to contact the Eco-quartier NDG.
