- En bref
The Town's organic waste collection only accepts paper bags.
Biodegradable, compostable or oxo-degradable bags are not allowed. Why? Among other things, it is a question of deficient certification, but also of degradation times.

The Town's collection
Since this spring, the organic waste collection permanently combines the yard trimmings collection and that of kitchen waste. From one week to the next, regardless of the season, residents can now use either the green or brown bin (but not both at the same time).
