The Region of Peel reminds all residents that the winter garbage exemption period is from January 27-February 7, 2020. Check your collection calendar to find your garbage exemption day.
During the exemption period, remember to put your extra garbage out only on your garbage collection day, not on your recycling collection day.
There is no maximum amount of acceptable garbage (check our website for a full list of items) that you can put on the curb. Garbage bag tags are not required during exemption periods.
Excess garbage cannot:
- Weigh more than 20 kg (44 lbs).
- Be larger than 66 cm (26 in) wide and 90 cm (35 in) high.
- Be smaller than 30 cm (12 in) wide and 30 cm (12 in) high.
Put your excess garbage close to but not on top of your garbage bins, leaving at least 1 m (3 ft.) of clear space between your extra garbage item(s) and your bins.
Residents are also encouraged to check their collection calendar or sign-up to receive free weekly collection reminders by email, text message, or phone call.
