Region of Peel Offers Residents Excess Waste Collection
BRAMPTON, ON (May 15, 2015) – Beginning Tuesday, May 19 to Friday, May 29 residents in the Cities of Brampton and Mississauga and the Town of Caledon are reminded that the Region is offering a two-week Excess Waste Collection for curbside waste pick up following the Victoria Day holiday.
During the curbside Excess Waste Collection two-week period, residents may place unlimited quantities of acceptable waste at the curb on their regularly scheduled collection day. For this period only no garbage tags will be required.
Please note: Set out standards must be followed and residents should adhere to the following guidelines:
- place organics, recycling and garbage at the curb no later than 7 a.m. but no earlier than 7 p.m. the night before;
- keep the weight of bags, containers and bundles of wood less than 20 kg (40 lb.) each;
- remove any item that is used to keep container lids shut (e.g. bungee cords) before collection; and,
- containers must have two handles that are attached or moulded to the exterior and have lids that are easy to remove
As a reminder, landscaping/renovation/construction building materials (e.g. sod, soil, shale, cut stone, drywall, tiles and large amounts of wood), tires and automotive parts, waste electronics and household hazardous waste are not collected at the curb at any time and can be dropped off at Peel's Community Recycling Centres – fees apply on some materials.
