Garbage exemption period is suspended across Peel

May 31, 2021

The Region of Peel advises residents that the spring garbage exemption period (originally scheduled from June 14-25) 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:

  • Only up to 2 excess garbage bags will be allowed until June 25. No tags needed.
  • Additional bags beyond the 2-bag limit will not be collected.
  • Bulky item collection will continue every garbage pick up day.

If residents must leave their home to dispose of extra garbage bags, they can take it to any Peel Community Recycling Centre (CRC), where disposal fees will apply. Check for locations and hours of operation. Please note that the CRCs only accept credit/debit payment. No cash accepted.

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

The Region of Peel works with residents and partners to create a healthy, safe and connected Community for Life for approximately 1.5 million people and over 175,000 businesses in the cities of Brampton and Mississauga and the Town of Caledon. Peel’s services touch the lives of residents every day. For more information about the Region of Peel, explore and follow us on Twitter @regionofpeel and Instagram
