Waste service changes across the Region during COVID-19 outbreak

BRAMPTON, ON (March 30, 2020) – Residents in the cities of Brampton and Mississauga and the Town of Caledon are advised of waste service changes due to COVID-19. The Region’s priority is to maintain waste collection services for the long term, while taking extra precautions to protect the health of essential workers and the needs of the community.

The following changes reflect the current situation. Waste management will regularly monitor the situation and advise on changes, if necessary.

At curbside:

These simple but important changes and steps will help protect the health of our staff as well as help slow the spread of COVID-19.

At apartment and condominium buildings:

At Peel Community Recycling Centres (CRC):

Please hold on to these items and avoid unnecessary ‘spring cleaning’ during this time.

Clothing/Textile Collection:

Collection of dropped-off clothing and other textile donations at community drop-off bins have been temporarily suspended by a number of charitable organizations who run these programs (for example, Diabetes Canada). Please hold on to these items and avoid unnecessary ‘spring cleaning’ during this time.

We urge all residents to do their part, sort their waste properly and help make a difference.
