Cutting trees and collecting branches

Pollarding trees is forbidden. An authorization certificate must be obtained from the Public Works Department prior to cutting down a tree. If the request is justified, this certificate is issued within seven working days from the application.

Branches are picked up by the Town twice a year. Only one pick-up per street in each period: at spring starting in May and at fall starting in October. Check your municipal calendar (in the downloadable documents, "Calendar" section) for exact dates, or call the Public Works Department, at 450 621-3500 ext. 3300. Branches should be placed by the roadside before these dates. Outside these periods, residents can bring their branches to the Ecocentre themselves. This rule does not apply to vacant lots and those under construction.
