Both Blue and Grey Recycling Boxes Now Collected Every Week

(Brampton) - The Region of Peel reminds residents they can now put both their blue and grey recycling boxes out to the curb each week on their regular collection day. Anticipating an increase in recycling due to the introduction of the three bag standard program, the Region changed to weekly collection of all household-recycling materials in June 2001.

"We're encouraging residents to maximize their recycling efforts," says Nathalie Henning, Acting Manager of Waste Collection and Processing. "We're confident the enhanced weekly collection of both blue and grey boxes will assist residents in meeting the three bag standard of waste each week."
