Collection of materials

The Town of Hudson urges residents to adopt sound environmental practices, especially distinguishing between waste, recyclable materials and food waste. For more information on the Town’s food waste collection program, click here: Food waste and green residues

Instructions on the use of wheeled bins

The vehicles used for garbage and recycling collection are equipped with a mechanical arm to lift the 240 and 360L wheeled bins. Food waste collection is done manually. For your bins to be emptied, it is important to follow the instructions below. Failure to do so may result in your bin not being picked up and may, in some circumstances, lead to a fine.

The wheeled bins are the property of the Town: blue for recycling, green for garbage and brown for compost. Each bin has a serial number associated with an address. The bins must not be interchanged with those of your neighbours. We recommend that you put your address in the space provided on the bin.

Placement of the bins for collection

The placement of the bins must not prevent snow removal or street cleaning.

In winter, because of the snow removal, the bins must be placed in the driveway entrance. Place your bin 1 meter from the street (not in the street or on the sidewalk), wheels facing your home. If you have multiple collections on the same day, place your bins a minimum of 30 cm apart from each other, and a minimum of 1 metre away from any objects, trees, cars, etc., in order to allow room for the mechanical arm to access your bin.

Bin placement

When to put out your bins

Place your bin at the end of your driveway in the evening before the collection, as the trucks do not always pass at the same time so pickup may be very early in the morning. Be sure to store your bins by 8 pm on the day of collection.

Maintenance

Regular cleaning of the bins is strongly suggested, especially before repairs or replacement of a bin.
