Since September 12, 2016, the management of residual waste has involved three main collections: brown bin (organic waste), blue bin (recycling) and grey bin (domestic waste). Special pick-ups will also be held throughout the year for large items, branches and natural Christmas trees.
To help you integrate the different pick-ups in your daily life, the following table summarizes what is accepted and refused by each of the three main waste collections.
- Organic waste (brown bin) is picked up every Monday in all sectors.
- Domestic waste (grey bin) and recycling (blue bin) are picked up on alternate weeks, from Tuesday to Friday depending on the sector (1, 2, 3 or 4).
