BRAMPTON, ON (September 8, 2020) – The Region of Peel advises residents that the fall garbage exemption period (originally scheduled from Sept 14-25, 2020) is suspended in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, to minimize manual collection and ensure worker safety, while maintaining services for the long term.

Residents are reminded that:

  • Unlimited amounts of garbage will not be collected.
  • You can place only up to 2 extra bags on your garbage collection day. No garbage tags needed.
  • Additional bags beyond the 2-bag limit will not be collected.
  • Bulky items continue to be collected at the curb and accepted at Peel Community Recycling Centres.

If residents must leave their home to dispose of extra garbage bags, residents can take it to any Peel Community Recycling Centre, where disposal fees may apply. Check peelregion.ca/waste for locations and hours of operation.

Residents are encouraged to check peelregion.ca/waste for information or sign up to receive free weekly waste notification reminders.
