Nothing is lost, nothing is created: everything is transformed!

Tree and shrub branches that are placed at the curbside for Branch pick-up are collected by our employees throughout the year and shredded into wood chips.

On the other hand, leaves collected during the fall Leaf pick-up are sent to a composting site where they are recovered as compost, a high-quality organic fertilizer.

In the Spring time, the town redistributes the compost and wood chips to its citizens for their personal use! An excellent example of how we recover our residual waste.
