How to Sort Your Waste

Garbage

LED bulbs and incandescent or halogen lights

This item is garbage.

Put this item in your garbage (grey) cart.

Special disposal instructions or restrictions:

  • Place broken bulb glass into a rigid cardboard box.
  • Tape the box tightly then put it in your garbage cart or a plastic garbage bag.

Additional information:

  • Place other sharp items such as old knives, scissors, box cutter blades, knitting needles, and pins into a rigid cardboard box. Tape the box tightly and put it in your garbage cart or a plastic garbage bag.
  • If your garbage cart is already full, excess garbage must be placed in a garbage bag. Tag the bag of excess garbage with a Region of Peel garbage tag.
  • Place the tagged bag or items close to — but not on top of — your garbage cart, leaving at least 1 m (3 ft) of clear space between your extra garbage item and your cart.
  • Garbage tags are not required during an exemption period. Your exemption period takes place on your scheduled garbage collection day in December or January, during or after the Christmas holiday. Check your collection calendar for your next exemption period.
  • Bulky items or furniture are always collected on your garbage week. Find your collection calendar.
