Citizens of Arrondissement d’Ahuntsic-Cartierville are complaining about the fact that the garbage of a neighbouring apartment building is regularly deposited near the street, outside of the permitted days and times.  The big bins used for this purpose do not have a cover, are often overflowing and emit foul odours that spread to the plaintiffs’ property.  The plaintiffs’ dealings with the Borough were not successful.  Our investigation confirms lapses in the interventions and follow-ups. The Borough accepts to go on location and recognizes the seriousness of the problem.  It intervenes more firmly with the owner of the building who agrees to collaborate.  The latter buys new bins with lids.  Between garbage collections, these bins are henceforth kept on the building’s property, in a discrete area.  The plaintiffs confirm that there is a major and sustained improvement.
