Green bins
May 17, 2017

The council of the municipality of La Pêche has adopted by-law 16-718 which established a service of garbage collection by green bin of 360 liter starting June  1st, 2017.

  • Section 15.1 of the by-law states that "occupants must purchase a green bin at their own expense,  as a garbage bin." These bins must have a maximum capacity of 360 liters and must be green. Blue recycling bins that have been painted for use as household garbage bins are not tolerated or accepted. Household waste must be put in bags before being placed in the bin. "

If you do not already own your green bin, you can get one from local businesses, such as Quincaillerie Ace, Gauvreau Ltée, Quincaillerie R-Cube and Matériaux Beausoleil.

Citizens who already have a smaller green bin (eg 240 liters) are not forced to replace them. However, if your bin (smaller size) breaks, it will need to be replaced with a 360 liter bin. See Council resolution 16-592 (french only) adopted on December 5, 2016.
