1. For evergreen trees
The collection of branches of evergreen trees (cedar, spruce, etc.) is carried out from April 20 to November 22, according to the same schedule as the recycling collection.
Branches must not be more than one metre long and 5 cm in diameter and must be bundled if they are not placed in a bag or container.
2. For branches of leafy trees
In order to avoid the spread of emerald ash borers, a special procedure is required for the collection of leafy tree branches (ash, maple, oak, birch, poplar, willow, etc.).
- You must phone 311 and mention whether you are calling about trunks, stumps or branches. In the case of branches, you must specify whether or not they are more than 20 cm in diameter.
- The branches, no more than 20 centimetres in diameter, must be placed in piles but not tied, and must be lined up so that the cut part is pointing toward the street. The shredder will carry out the work on site. The branches must be placed in such a way that they don't interfere with traffic.
- A maximum of 4 cubic metres of leafy tree branches will be picked up per address, per collection (the equivalent of 4 dryers placed side by side).
- The branches will be picked up within approximately 10 working days after your phone call to 311.
If you deal with a private tree trimmer, you must make sure that he picks up all the wood chips resulting from his work.
