Branches

Branch removal service on the territory of Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue is available throughout the year (it is no longer necessary to call to register).

The Town will collect your branches FREE OF CHARGE on the first and third week of each month from Monday to Wednesday.

Since the team will pass on your street only once, it is important to place your waste items at the stated time the night before (on Sunday); do not worry if your branches havel not been collected by Tuesday evening.

Branches must be neatly stacked by the side of the road, blunt ends facing the road.

Please note that branch collection includes the collection of Christmas trees, but stumps or logs exceeding 22 cm (9 inches) in diameter, roots and branches with attached soil, metal, rope, etc., are excluded because they may damage the branch chopping equipment. These items will not be collected.

Waste Reduction

What can we do?

Rethinking, reducing, reusing and recycling are easy ways to cut pollution, conserve natural resources and energy and reduce what goes into Montreal's landfills. While some materials such as aluminum, steel, and some types of glass can be recycled indefinitely, it is important that we approach the problem from an upstream point of view by rethinking the way we consume and that we reduce what we throw into the garbage.

For more information, please read this document: "Consommer autrement" (in French only) made by the City of Montreal and Recyc-Québec.

  • When shopping, choose products with the least packaging and bring a reusable shopping bag
  • Purchase durable items that will last you a long time such as rechargeable batteries
  • Purchase refillable items, such as dishwashing liquid, cleaning fluids
  • Print front and back
  • Avoid buying drinks or food in Styrofoam containers or other non-recyclable materials
  • When buying a product, remember you will also be throwing out the packaging
  • Avoid buying items that are individually wrapped or have excess packaging

 

  • Use a reuseable coffee mug and water bottle
  • Bubble-wrap, wrapping paper, ribbons, string, rubber bands, twist-ties, and paper clips can all be reused
  • Switch to cloth napkins or towels

 

 

 

Christmas trees

This special collection is in addition to the City's many environmental sustainability efforts to reduce the amount of waste sent to landfills.

Steps to follow:

  • Trees must be free of ornaments (including hooks and icicles)
  • Trees must be placed on the curb in front of the residence (not in the snow)
  • Trees must not obstruct the sidewalk
