Residual Materials Collection for Businesses

The information below is intended for businesses. Residents have their own page on the various residual materials collections.


Our collection service serves businesses and industries throughout Town of Mount Royal's territory. However, the limit is set at 6 containers per business. If your business produces more garbage and recycling, you'll need to hire a private contractor.

Bins: A User’s Guide

How to place your bins for pick-up?

  • Put out your bins after 19:00 on the evening before collection day or before 7:00 on collection day.
  • Place your full or partially filled bins in your driveway 15 to 30 cm (6 to 12 in.) behind the property line. Leave at least 30 cm (12 in.) between the bins.
  • Make sure no vehicle or other object can interfere with the mechanical lifting of the bins.
  • Make sure the lids are tightly closed and free of debris.
  • All bins must be put away by 23:00 on collection day.

Bins that are improperly positioned, too heavy or hard to handle will not be picked up. Also, bins and all other types of containers are prohibited on public roads.

Identifying your bins

Write your address on the white strips under the bin’s serial number. Write down the bin serial number for your own records. As the blue, green and brown bins are Town property, they must remain at the address to which they were delivered.

What to do if your bin isn’t emptied

If none of the bins on your street have been emptied and it is past 18:00, please leave the bin in the designated spot for the collection and call the Info Collection line at 514 734-4123. The contractor hired by the Town will complete the collection as soon as possible.

If your bin appears to be the only one that has not been emptied, put it away and wait for the next collection. If the problem occurs again, please call the Info Collection line at 514 734-4123

Bins with an american grip are not picked up mechanically. In fact, 360-litre bins without the recommended European fixture will not be picked up manually either. The Town recommends the purchase of a black, 360-litre rollout bin with a European grip, also known as "standard".

ATTENTION: Changes to the procedure for mechanized collection of blue bins

As of June 5, 2024, Éco Entreprises Québec will be in charge of managing selective collection (blue bin) for all municipalities, including TMR. 

Collection will now be mechanized on most streets, which will entail certain changes in the procedure for ensuring that your blue bin is collected.

IMPORTANT: As of June 5, please keep a clear space of at least 30 cm (1 ft.) around each bin; Nothing may be left next to your bin; everything must be inside it.

Recyclables left on the ground will not be picked up.
