Large garbage pick-up in Sherbrooke
Large garbage, tree branches and cardboard pick-ups will begin again in Sherbrooke this week. For the week of July 4th, large objects and branches will be collected in the boroughs of Mont-Bellevue, Jacques Cartier and downtown. The week of July 11th they will be collected in Lennoxville and Fleurimont, and the week of July 18th in Brompton and Rock Forest-Saint Elie-Deauville.
The cardboard pick-ups will take place this week in Brompton, Jacques-Cartier and Rock Forest-Saint Elie-Deauville. The week of July 11th they will take place in Fleurimont, Lennoxville, Mont-Bellevue and downtown.
The large objects must be separate from the branches. They must be placed at the side of the street after 7:00 pm the night before the usual day of garbage pick-up, or no later than 8:00 am the day of the pick-up. The maximum volume of material is one square meter per kind of material, about the amount you can put in a small trailer. The branches must be tied in bunches no longer than 1.2 meters (four feet) and no wider than 30 centimeters (twelve inches).
The cardboard must be flattened and piled beside the rolling bins sometime before 8:00 am the morning of the regular pick-up.
The population is reminded that the large objects that are picked up are destined for the dump, so if they are still useful in some way, they should be brought to an organization that could use them.
Tires, dangerous household products and electronic equipment will not be picked up during these special pick-ups. Those kinds of products must be taken to an eco-centre.
