Green inside and out and acutely aware of global issues, Town of Mount Royal strives to protect the environment. Not only do residents proudly support sustainable development, they also find their hopes and concerns reflected in the Town’s various policies. In Mount Royal, doing our share for the environment is… completely natural!
Herbicides, fungicides and insecticides be gone! The use of pesticides is banned in Mount Royal. The healthy green of our lawns is 100% natural and due only to the care lavished on them by their owners and to the warming rays of the sun. Say, when was the last time you laid on the grass and looked up at the clouds? In Mount Royal, our lawns are an open invitation to spend time outdoors.
Give a second life to your kitchen scraps and garden clippings: start composting!
From mid-April to mid-October, make use also of our yard waste collection by dropping garden trimmings inside a green rollout bin.
Contact us for more information.
Recyclable materials include glass containers, cans, plastic, paper and cardboard, and the Town collects all of them. You will need a blue rollout bin if none is already assigned to your address, regarding which you can contact our Technical coordinator in environmental and sustainable development at 514-734-4123.
The average Quebecer consumes approximately 400 litres of water per day. Want to reduce your treated water usage? Just like you, we feel that it is crucial to conserve and protect this valuable resource; besides local by-laws that cover issues like lawn watering, we offer tips and tricks for lowering your water use.
The Town of Mount Royal has adopted a sustainable development action plan. The actions it contains directly affect residents on a daily basis, as they pertain to quality of life, transportation, environment and economy. The Town wishes to encourage residents’ participation in the responsible use of our resources.
