Election signs can be dropped off at three Peel Community Recycling Centres free of charge
Brampton, ON. (September 16, 2021) – The Region of Peel advises all candidates taking part in the federal elections on September 20, 2021 to properly dispose of signs after the close of these elections. They can also be recycled free of charge at three designated Peel Community Recycling Centres: Fewster, Brampton and Bolton locations only.
Election signs will not be collected at the curbside and are not accepted in apartment recycling containers.
It is the responsibility of the candidate’s campaign office to remove their signs based on municipal guidelines (usually between 48 and 72 hours after the close of the election).
If residents have supported a candidate with a sign and prefer to recycle the signs prior to removal by the candidate’s campaign office, they must separate the three main types of signs, corrugated plastic, paperboard and plastic film, from their associated hardware (e.g. Nylon zip ties, metal staples, wooden stakes, metal ”O” rings and dirt/debris) to qualify for free drop off.
When taking election signs to one of the three designated Community Recycling Centres, residents must keep them separate from other recycling and waste materials to meet the dedicated load free drop-off criteria.
