Updated on May 10, 2022: The Town wishes to inform you that the annual compost distribution day originally scheduled for May 13, 2022 will be postponed. Unfortunately, the compost delivered by the supplier was contaminated by an exotic common reed, commonly known as phragmites, a harmful plant to the compost. This compost must thus be returned to the producer, who will then redeliver new, quality compost as soon as possible.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused and  will keep you informed as the situation unfolds.

The Town will offer compost for residents to pick up, free of charge. The compost is certified for all uses including vegetable gardening. 

It will be deposited in Hodgson field near the basketball court on Friday May 13, 2022. Pickup is on a self-serve basis; please bring your own bucket and shovel. We also ask that you avoid driving on the field and that you adhere to all sanitary measures posted at the site. The material will remain available for pickup until supplies run out.

For any further questions, fill out the Contact us form (select Public Works) or call 514-485-8597. We thank you for your cooperation.
