BRAMPTON, ON (April 22, 2019) – The Region of Peel is hosting its annual Conservation Day at the Clarkson Go Station in south Mississauga on Saturday, April 27.
Conservation Day, held from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., is a special one-day event that brings specific waste management services to Peel residents. The Clarkson Go Station is located at 1110 Southdown Road. (Event entrance off-Royal Windsor Drive)
Residents can drive in and drop off the below items for free:
- confidential paper for shredding,
- household hazardous waste: batteries, household cleaners, paints and solvents, items with mercury,
- reusable goods: clothing, textiles, books and small appliances – but not furniture, and
- used electronic equipment: phones, personal computers, circuit boards and TVs.
“Conservation Day gives residents the opportunity to dispose of unwanted items for free,” says Dwayne Cromwell, Supervisor, Community Recycling Centre, at the Region of Peel. “Disposing of these items properly and safely is a great way to help to keep our community clean and items out of landfill.”
Residents can also purchase rain barrels for $50 – cash only, taxes included.
Residents can check peelregion.ca/waste to see what other items can be dropped off at any Peel Community Recycling Centre – and drop-off fees that may apply to those items.
