Garbage and recycling

The garbage and recycling disposal is located at the back of the building. It is really important to regularly take out your garbage and recycling. We have a regularly scheduled exterminator (shoutout to Daniel – you’re the real one) but nothing attracts rodents and insects more than empty pizza boxes under your bed, UberEats bags in the hallways, and overflowing bins. 
If you didn’t know, here’s your introduction to Big City Life in Downtown Montreal: Once the first real freeze occurs, the little creatures found in our downtown are cold and seek warmth. It is 100% normal (happens throughout all downtown buildings) to get an initial visit from field mice. We’re ready with Daniel making the rounds on a regular basis. However, help us help you.  Regularly take out your garbage and not leave food out. Let’s not invite these little friends into our home - they haven’t even passed the interview process lol !!
