Donating items for reuse
Clothing donation sheds temporarily closed
Most charities have suspended the collection of donated clothing and other textiles from community drop-off sheds. This includes the Diabetes Canada sheds at 10 Peel Centre Drive and 7120 Hurontario Street. Do not donate items at this time.
The Region's reuse drop-off areas accept items in good working condition that can be reused.

Donation drop-off areas
Donation drop–off areas are designated areas where residents can drop off items in good condition that can be reused.
We've partnered with The Salvation Army Thrift Store, Caledon Community Services Evolve Lifestyle store and Diabetes Canada to provide reuse services for the residents of Peel.
The Salvation Army Thrift Store and Donor Welcome Centres
The Salvation Army Thrift Store accepts and sells gently-used, reusable items in good condition.
The store is located at the Brampton Community Recycling Centre at 395 Chrysler Drive. You can drop off your gently-used items for donation, as well as browse and buy reusable items that others have donated.
Donations are accepted at Donor Welcome Centres at four Peel Community Recycling Centres (CRCs).
