2010/2011 Waste Management Information Guide Coming to Your Home

BRAMPTON, ON. (March 10, 2010) – During the weeks of March 15 and 22, the 2010/2011 Waste Management Guide will be delivered to Peel households that receive curbside waste collection services. A separate guide, customized to the waste disposal needs of apartments and condominiums, will be delivered this spring.

Both guides contain important information about the Region's waste collection programs, as well as the services offered at Peel’s network of Community Recycling Centres.

"Residents are encouraged to keep their guide for easy reference throughout the year," says Dave Gordon, Manager of Waste Planning. "The information contained in the guide should serve as the first source of information on the Region’s waste management programs and services."

Residents who opt out of receiving unaddressed ad mail should note that the guide will not be delivered to their household. Copies of the guide can be obtained by calling the Region of Peel at 905-791-9499. An electronic version is available at www.peelregion.ca/waste.

Contents of the guide:

  • Curbside collection services - Everything you need to know about the Region’s curbside waste collection services, including a holiday and exemption period schedule, green bin and blue box tips, yard waste information and other collection guidelines
  • Electronics Recycling – Information about changes to the Region’s electronics recycling program. Starting April 5, 2010, select electronic waste will no longer be collected at the curb or apartment buildings. Instead, residents can drop off select electronic waste at any Community Recycling Centre to be recycled, free of charge
  • Recycling Guide - A chart listing acceptable and not acceptable blue box items
  • Garbage tag, blue box and green bin pick-up locations - A complete listing of the distribution outlets throughout Peel offering garbage tags for purchase. The list also includes locations where residents can purchase or exchange recycling boxes, green bins and kitchen containers
  • Community Recycling Centres - This section provides a detailed look at the variety of services and disposal options offered at Peel’s network of Community Recycling Centres

Residents who do not receive their guide by the end of March should call the Region of Peel at
