(Brampton)-The Region of Peel's Yard Waste Program starts on Monday, April 2, 2001, in the cities of Brampton and Mississauga.

"Yard waste should be set at the curb on regular collection days," said Dwayne Cromwell, Manager of Waste Collection and Processing at the Region of Peel.

Follow these guidelines when preparing yard waste for collection:

"After yard waste is taken from the curb, it goes to a compost facility where it's converted into garden compost and later distributed to residents at Environment Days," said Cromwell.

For more information on this or any other waste management program, please call the Region's WASTELINE at 905-791-9499, or visit our Web site at
