Temporary changes to garbage collection in Peel from May 3 to June 25

BRAMPTON, ON (April 19, 2021) – In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, residents are advised of the temporary changes to garbage collection in Peel.

Allowance of 2 excess garbage bags:

Starting May 3 to June 25, every household can place up to two extra garbage bags at the curb on their garbage collection day, without requiring bag tags. Please note that collection staff will only pick up a maximum of two additional bags.

Residents who have purchased bag tags are advised to hold on to them until further notice.

Excess garbage must be placed at the curb in black plastic bags only. Excess garbage in containers will not be collected.

Spring garbage exemption period is suspended:

Peel Region advises residents that the spring garbage exemption period (June 14-25) is suspended. This is being done to ensure the continued health and safety of our waste collection staff.

Residents are reminded that they can place their bulky items every garbage pickup day all year round.

If residents must leave their home to dispose of extra garbage bags, they can take it to any Peel Community Recycling Centre. Check for locations, hours of operation and disposal fees.

Please expect collection delays as a result of these changes. Collectors might also collect your regular garbage and pick up garbage bags at different times during the day. Leave your garbage bin and excess garbage bags at the curb until 8 p.m. If neither are collected by 8 p.m., report a missed collection. We appreciate your patience during this time.
