Gatineau plans special meeting as residents raise stink about garbage pickup

By CBC News Ottawa, August 11, 2018

Gatineau city councillors will hold a special meeting to respond to the garbage woes plaguing the city following the implementation of a new bylaw on garbage pickup limits.

Since July 15, Gatineau households have been prevented from throwing out bulky items and construction waste on their regular garbage day — one of the city's new rules designed to divert compostable and recyclable materials from its dump.

Many residents are complaining, however, that people are now illegally dumping garbage on the edges of streets and on other people's properties.
