How to Sort Your Waste

Garbage

Plastic or Metal Gasoline Container and Cap (or Spout)

This item is garbage.

Put this item in your garbage (grey) cart.

Special disposal instructions or restrictions:

  • Remove the cap or spout from the container to release vapours and ensure the container is completely empty.
  • Put the cap or spout and the empty container separately in the garbage.

Additional information:

  • 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 exemption periods. Exemption periods take place on your scheduled garbage collection day in May, after Victoria Day; in September, after Labour Day; and in December and January, during or after the Christmas holiday.
  • Bulky items or furniture are always collected on your garbage week. Find your collection calendar.
