As part of World Children’s Day on November 20, the City wishes to celebrate the little Blainvilloises and Blainvillois aged 0 to 5 years old. Thus, by participating in the contest, parents have the chance to win one of 10 sets of books by Quebec authors (personalized according to the child’s age) worth $ 50!
Giving reading as a gift also means giving yourself quality time with your child!

Disposing of Christmas trees
There are two options for disposing of the Christmas trees: via targeted collection or via the ecocentre.
Targeted collection – Mandatory online request
Citizens must make an online request to have their tree picked up. Only requests made by January 10, 2021, will be processed. The collection begins the second week of January and extends over two weeks throughout the territory. However, it is impossible to determine the precise day of the collection given the quantity of trees and the variable climatic conditions from one year to another.
The trees must be dropped off at the curb before 7 a.m. on January 11, 2021 (collection start date), otherwise they may not be picked up. Trees should be stripped of all decorations (hooks, icicles, etc.). The tree should not be placed in a plastic bag. In bad weather or to facilitate snow removal and snow loading operations, the tree must be removed momentarily, then, as soon as possible, replace it so that it is easily accessible when collecting it.
Écocentre: Residents trees can drop off their tree free of charge at the ecocentre, located at 302 rue Omer-DeSerres (open Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 4:45 p.m.).
