Large garbage pick-up in Sher­brooke

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - 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.
