The city of Montreal is planning to eliminate twice a week garbage pickup and move to once a week in all 19 boroughs by 2019.
Currently, ten boroughs have trash collected twice a week, while nine boroughs have it picked up once a week.
Réal Ménard, the city's executive committee member responsible for the environment, said Monday he wants the same standard across the city.
"Boroughs that currently have two pickups a week of garbage will see one of those pickups replaced by a compost pickup using brown bins," Ménard said, referring to the bins that are currently used by 100,000 households in various neighbourhoods around the island.
