Region of Peel Waives CRC fee from May 11 to 20 for Wind Storm Damaged Material
BRAMPTON, ON. (May 11, 2018) - The Region of Peel is waiving its Community Recycling Centre (CRC) fees until May 20 for residents who are dropping off fencing material and trees that were damaged in the May 4 wind storm.
"Last Friday's wind storm resulted in major tree and property damage in many areas," says Norm Lee, the Region's Director of Waste Management. "So we are pleased to offer residents this temporary CRC fee exemption to help them deal with the clean-up by properly disposing of their materials at one of the Region's six CRCs."
This temporary fee exemption will only last until the end of the CRC hours on Sunday, May 20. Four of the Region's CRCs now have extended hours:
Monday to Thursdays to 8 p.m.:
- Brampton CRC
- Battleford CRC
Thursdays only to 8 p.m.:
- Heart Lake CRC
- Fewster CRC
Bolton CRC and Caledon CRC hours remain unchanged.

Residents should also note: scrap wood, tree trunks, stumps and large branches must be 1.2 m (4 feet) or less in length before residents drop them off at a CRC. Check How to Sort Your Waste at peelregion.ca/waste for more details.
