Organic waste matter: Start filling your brown bin!

 You can start filling your brown bin now as collection begins in two weeks. A little trick to prevent materials from sticking to the bin walls or freezing at the bottom: put some newspaper or cardboard at the bottom of the bin.

In order to determine which day the collection of organic materials is for your zone, citizens are invited to consult the annual municipal calendar. The collection schedule is also available on the Town’s website at the following the link

To learn more about the recycling of organic materials, we also refer you to the “My brown bin” page on the Town’s Website or by visiting the MRC website.

Important change in the collection of residual material (garbage and organic)

The new brown bin service for the collection of organic materials starts 10 and 11 January 2019. During the winter it will take place every two weeks. About 45% of the content of our domestic waste is organic material, this must now go in the new brown bins and will be collected for composting. As a result, also starting in January 2019, the Town will collect domestic garbage every 4 weeks. The collection of recyclable materials does not change and will continue every 2 weeks. Note that there is no change at this time to the collection service for businesses.

In order to know the exact day for each collection (organic, garbage and recycle), in each sector, citizens are invited to consult the municipal calendar which will be distributed to residents before the end of the year. The collection schedules for all residual materials can also be viewed on the Town’s website:

Maintenance work by the MTQ on Route 139 between Sutton and West Brome

Due to the early arrival of winter conditions last week, maintenance work on Route 139 between Sutton and West Brome was halted; this work is under the control of the Ministry of Transportation. The Town of Sutton has been in frequent contact with the Ministry regarding its plans for the work in progress. The Ministry assured us that the resumption of work on this section will be a priority for spring 2019. They also assured us that, as an interim measure, they intend to apply a thin layer of paving along the entire length of the site as soon as weather conditions permit.

Therefore, if the weather is favorable on Saturday, November 24 and Sunday November 25, work teams should be busy applying a layer of paving to ensure the safety of road users this winter. The Town will stay in regular contact with Ministry officials throughout the winter to ensure that Route 139 is safe for our community and for visitors.
