State of Plateau alley blamed on Airbnb

An alley of such significance that it has a street name parallels Mont-Royal for blocks – the ruelle Généreux. People whose businesses back onto it are mad because it’s been filthy this year from spilled cooking oil and garbage allegedly put out at random times by Airbnb tenants or operators. One restaurant is hoping flower planters will keep trash away from its back door.

There are also complaints about garbage piles in Ville-Marie, but these are being blamed on post-Moving Day dumps not yet tackled by the city.
