Yard Waste Collection Reminder

(Brampton) - The Region of Peel reminds residents that yard waste should be set at the curb in open reusable containers or Kraft paper yard bags. Yard waste in plastic bags will not be collected after June 29, 2001.

Follow these guidelines when preparing yard waste for collection:

"Yard waste taken from the curb goes to a compost facility where it's converted into garden compost and later distributed to residents at Environment Days," said Nathalie Henning, Acting Manager of Waste Collection and Processing.

For more information on this or any other waste management programs, please visit the Region of Peel's Web site at, or call the WASTELINE at 905-791-9499. Residents in long distance areas in Caledon can call, free-of-charge, 905-584-2216 and ask for the WASTELINE.
