Dead leaves

The beautiful color season brings its share of work, especially with regard to the management of dead leaves. You must know that no bags (paper or plastic) filled with dead leaves will be collected at the roadside.

So what to do with all your leaves?

  • Take advantage of this opportunity to do some foliage. This technique consists of leaving the leaves crushed by the lawn mower on the ground. They will decompose and offer a richness to your soil and your lawn;
  • Transform the leaves into humus. In a corner, pile up the leaves and wet them. In the spring, they will have decomposed and you can spread the material at the foot of shrubs or in your garden;
  • Use your dead leaves as insulation to protect your plants from winter frost;
  • Put the leaves to compost.
DO KNOW THAT the Municipality has at your disposal three (3) composting containers for voluntary contribution on the territory. Here is the location of the bins:
  • In the the Town Hall’s parking lot;
  • At the intersection of Mille-Isles Road and Côte Saint-Joseph;
  • At the intersection of Black Road and Tamaracouta Road, near Tamaracouta scout camp.

Finally, avoid burning them out of ecological awareness and for safety reasons.
