Region of Peel has changed the timing of its garbage exemption periods

By Events, Issues, Resources

As you may be aware, the Region of Peel has changed the timing of its garbage exemption periods, starting this year, to maintain and enhance our waste collection services for our residents.

The new dates for 2019 and early 2020 are:

 

OLD DATES NEW DATES
May 2019

(following Victoria Day)

June 17-28, 2019
September 2019

(following Labour Day)

September 16-27, 2019
December 2019

(following Christmas/New Year)

January 27-31, 2020

February 3-7, 2020

 

During an exemption period there is no maximum amount of acceptable garbage residents can put on the curb. Garbage bag tags are not required during exemption periods.

This change was made to address the high volume of excess garbage that is typically collected during an exemption period, as well as to avoid holidays and conflicts with other waste pick-up services being provided around the same time.

To proactively inform residents of this change, the Region is communicating this information through several channels, starting May 6 through to end of June, with similar reminders going out in the Fall and Winter.

The Region will also be using this opportunity to promote a waste collection notifications feature launching soon, which residents can start registering for ahead of time.

Information will be delivered to residents using Peel’s website, Twitter and subscriber e-newsletter, community newspapers and direct mail, mobile street signage, and face-to-face resident interactions with Peel’s by-law officers. Examples of Peel’s communications material are attached for your reference.

For more information about these exemption changes, please contact Paula Della Bianca, Project Manager, Curbside Policies and Programs for the Region of Peel at 905-791-7800 ext. 4513 or Paula.DellaBianca@peelregion.ca.

By Events, Issues, Resources, Uncategorized

May 01, 2019

This summer, Mississauga youth aged 12 to 14 years can ride MiWay and access indoor and outdoor City of Mississauga pools for free with a Freedom Pass. The pass is valid from July 1 to August 31.

“Summer is a great time in Mississauga and with a Freedom Pass, youth can enjoy it with free rides to our pools, libraries and parks as well as to great events, festivals and attractions,” said Shari Lichterman, Director, Recreation.

How to Apply for a Pass

  • Application forms can be downloaded and printed by visiting mississauga.ca/freedompass or picked up at any City community centre.
  • Signed and completed application forms must be submitted in person to any City community centre, along with one piece of identification (parent/guardian signature is required) displaying proof of age.
  • Applicants will also need to have their photo taken by City customer service staff to create a personalized Freedom Pass.

“The Freedom Pass provides youth with a great opportunity to learn about our MiWay transit system. Understanding how it works, how they can get around Mississauga to get where they want to go independently,” said Geoff Marinoff, Director, Transit.

The Freedom Pass program continues to grow in popularity since its launch in 2014 with more than 8,000 Freedom Passes distributed in 2018.

Freedom Pass cards will be available on May 1 (quantities are limited and will be issued on a first come, first served basis). Only valid Freedom Pass holders are eligible to ride MiWay for free.

Excess Water Conditions in local Park – Warning!

By Events, Issues, Resources, Uncategorized

Current water levels along the Lake Ontario shoreline are high and are nearing the levels set in 2017, when extreme conditions caused significant damage along the lakeshore in Mississauga.  Levels in Lake Ontario are higher than usual due to higher than usual intake from Lake Erie and restriction of water outflow at the Moses-Saunders Power Dam.   Staff are regularly patrolling the City of Mississauga shoreline and report some flooding along the waterfront specifically at:

 

  • Jack Darling Park (public access closed where the water has washed over pathways)
  • C. Saddington Park
  • Marina Park (public access closed where the water has washed over pathways)
  • Public access closed at pedestrian underpass at Lakeshore Road
  • Lawrence (public access closed where the water has washed over pathways)

High water is expected to continue along the waterfront for some time and peak over the next month before slowly receding.  I have attached some pictures of current conditions for your consideration.

  • Photo 1-St Lawrence.jpg
  • Photo 2-JC Saddington.jpg
  • Photo 3-Marina Park.jpg
  • Photo 4 – Jack Darling.jpg

 

The current weather forecast indicates that rain will continue to fall today and continue until Friday with forecasted accumulation of 40 mm of precipitation by the end of the week.  In addition, we are currently experiencing high gusts of easterly winds, which directly affect wave action into the shoreline. The Works Operations and Maintenance Incident Management Team has been activated and will be meeting again this afternoon to report on conditions.  I will provide another update following this meeting.

 

Mitigation Strategies

  • City staff are on stand-by and monitoring high risk flood areas.
  • Dewatering pumps within the Lisgar district were set up as per the High Water Protocol.
  • 1,000 sand bags are ready for use, if required.
  • Crews are standing by to clear debris on affected park pathways once waves recede in preparation for the Mississauga Marathon this weekend.

The City of Mississauga has received a Lake Ontario Flood Watch from the Credit Valley Conservation (CVC). Water safety messaging is in place on the City’s website.

Should you require additional information or assistance, please contact me………….
