How to Sort Your Waste

Garbage

Cardboard barrel

This item is garbage.

Place this item next to your garbage (grey) cart on your garbage collection day.

Special disposal instructions or restrictions:

  • A cardboard barrel must weigh less than 20 kg (44 lb) to be collected from the curb. If the barrel weighs more than 20 kg, take it to a Peel Community Recycling Centre (CRC) for disposal. A disposal fee will apply.

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.
  • Bulky items or furniture are always collected on your garbage week. Find your collection calendar.
