    SCHEDULED WATER SUPPLY INTERRUPTION

    Dear Customer:

    The Region of Peel Public Works department regularly maintains and repairs the water system to make sure you have a reliable supply of quality drinking water. Sometimes we must turn off your water supply while we do the work. In the next few days, we will be working in your area and will have to turn off your water for a few hours.

    Your water will be turned off on Wednesday, November 4, 2020 from approximately 09:00 a.m. to 05:00 p.m. However, if the weather is bad or if a problem arises, we will reschedule the work and will let you know the new date and time.

    When we turn the water back on, air in the pipes may make the water cloudy and your plumbing may vibrate or make noise. If this happens, you can remove the air by briefly turning on your taps from the lowest to the highest faucet in the building (that is, starting in the basement/first floor and finishing on the top floor). Flush the toilets as well.

    You should only have to run the water for 10 to 30 seconds, but keep running it until the water is clear and any vibration or noise has stopped.

  • Region of Peel supports the province’s plan to improve blue box recycling program

    October 30, 2020

    The Region of Peel has moved a step closer to its goal of 75 per cent waste diversion. In an announcement last week, the Ontario government put forward a proposal to overhaul the blue box recycling program.

    The proposal includes expanding the items that can be recycled and making producers of products and packaging fully responsible for managing the full lifecycle of their products.

    “The Region of Peel thanks Premier Ford, Minister Yurek and the Ontario Government for its continued work to enhance the blue box recycling program and moving this policy change forward,” says Norman Lee, the Region’s Director of Waste Management. “A plan that allows residents to put more items in their recycling and that makes collection consistent across the province is a step in the right direction that will result in less garbage being sent to landfill.”

    Proposed changes to the program include:

    • standardizing and increasing the list of materials accepted in the blue box to include paper and plastic cups, wraps, foils, trays, and bags and other single-use items such as stir sticks, straws, cutlery and plates;
    • making producers operationally and financially responsible for the management of their blue box recyclables;
    • transitioning the costs of the program away from municipal taxpayers to producers;
    • encouraging innovation such as better product design and the use of new recycling technologies and processes for better environmental outcomes; and
    • exempting small generators of blue box recyclables to minimize the impact and burden on small businesses.

    “The Region of Peel continues to advocate for its residents and for a seamless transition with no disruption to waste collection services,” Mr. Lee adds.

  • Council Outcomes October 28, 2020: Renaming of Central Library & Motion Condemning Islamophobia

    Today, Council put forward a motion to condemn Islamophobia along with approving the renaming of Mississauga’s Central Library in honour of former Mayor, Hazel McCallion.

    “There is no tolerance for intolerance. Mississauga, as a multicultural and dynamic community, along with all communities in Canada, must be welcoming, inclusive and safe. Places where all people, can live, work and raise a family without experiencing any form of hatred and bigotry,” said Mayor Bonnie Crombie. “I’m also pleased that we’ll be renaming our soon-to-be renovated library in honour of former Mayor, Hazel McCallion, to mark her 100th birthday. Hazel served the Mississauga community for more than 50 years and presided over an incredible transformation that saw Mississauga grow into a vibrant, prosperous and thriving world-class City.”

    In honour of former Mayor Hazel McCallion’s 100 birthday and her decades of service to Mississauga, the City of Mississauga will rename Central Library to the Hazel McCallion Central Library.

    Hazel McCallion served the people of Mississauga for 53 years as Reeve and Mayor of Streetsville, and as Councillor and Mayor of the City of Mississauga, and held the title of Canada’s longest-serving Mayor. Hazel McCallion has received and conferred many awards, as a Member of the Order of Canada, the Order of Ontario, the Queen’s Golden and Diamond Jubilee Medals, an Honourary Doctor of Laws from the University of Toronto, the Key to the City of Mississauga, and many other national and international awards and distinctions.

    The motion was raised by Ward 6 Councillor Ron Starr. Staff will bring back a report to Council for the renaming and the new name will be unveiled for Hazel McCallion’s birthday of 100 years on February 14, 2021.

    Motion condemning Islamophobia and all forms of racism
