Yard Waste Pick-Up Ends The Last Week In November

(Brampton) - The Region of Peel's annual Yard Waste Collection Program in the cities of Brampton and Mississauga ends the week of Nov. 26 to Nov. 30, 2001.

"The Region will continue to collect yard waste until the last week in November," said Ben Shepherd, Manager of Waste Collection and Processing for the Region of Peel. "Residents can set their yard waste at the curb on their regular collection days and the Region will continue to pick it up until the end of the month."

Follow these guidelines when preparing yard waste for collection:

"After yard waste is taken from the curb, it is transported to a compost facility where it's converted into garden compost and later distributed to residents at the Region's annual Environment Day events," said Shepherd.
