Over the next few weeks, the City of Sherbrooke will be carrying out its collection of bulky garbage, wood and branches. Borough # 4 (formerly Jacques-Cartier and Mont Bellevue) will see this collection during the week of April 30, while boroughs #2 (Fleurimont) and # 3 (Lennoxville) will be targeted during the week of May 7. The pick-up will end in the week of May 14 for Borough 1 (Rock forest-St.-Élie-Deauville and Brompton). To facilitate collection, the public is encouraged to place its waste in four distinct clusters: one for bulky waste (mattresses, plumbing equipment, blinds, etc.); one for wood residue (furniture, planks, etc.); one for coniferous branches and finally, one for hardwood branches. Cumbersome residue Objects that become unusable and do not fit in the black bin must be within a maximum of one cubic meter and have a maximum weight of 20 kg (44 lb). Hazardous household waste like paint containers, television sets or other electronic products, as well as tires, with or without a rim, will not be picked up and should be sent to an ecocentre. Treated wood residue The maximum volume for wood waste must be kept within one cubic meter and must not exceed 1.2 meters (4 feet) in length. Planks should be placed together, parallel to the street. Branches Branches should be bundled in separate piles with a maximum volume of four cubic meters for all branches, have a maximum diameter of 20 centimeters (8 inches) and a maximum length of 1.2 meters (4 feet). Bundles should not be tied together and should be placed parallel to the street. Hardwood branches will be shredded on site and residue from tree felling (tree stumps) longer than 20 centimeters (8 inches), will be refused. While piles of bulky residue, wood and coniferous branches will be picked up on the same day, piles of hardwood branches will be picked up a few days later, during the same week.
