Changes to fees at Peel's Community Recycling Centres and extended summer hours
BRAMPTON, ON (June 11) – Peel’s Community Recycling Centres (CRCs) continue to assess and respond to the waste needs of our community during the challenges of Covid-19. Effective today, CRCs will allow visitors to drop off up to 100 kg of excess waste, once per day, with no fees; however, standard fees will apply to anything over the 100 kg limit. Payment can only be made using debit or credit. Cash will not be accepted.
No fees will apply to loads of only scrap metal and blue box recyclables.
For the safety of the community and employees, CRCs have implemented measures of physical distancing and have limited the number of vehicles allowed into the CRCs at any one time. As such, residents should be aware that there may be delays.
Residents are reminded to dispose of only what they need to during this emergency. If working on any home renovation projects, please note that ceramic, porcelain and other renovation material are not recyclable and should be brought to a CRC for disposal. In addition, batteries are considered household hazardous waste and should also be taken to a CRC for safe disposal. Do not place batteries in the garbage or recycling bin.
At this time, our reuse drop-off locations are closed. Any reusable goods brought to the CRC will be put into garbage and sent to landfill. CRCs are not accepting tires, electronic waste, large appliances or bulky items until further notice.
In order to manage the waste needs of Peel residents and continue providing reasonable waste disposal options, extended summer hours from 4:30 pm to 8:00 pm have started at the following CRCs:
- Fewster and Heart Lake CRCs – Thursdays only
- Battleford and Brampton CRCs – Mondays only
Residents are also encouraged to visit peelregion.ca/waste/community-recycling-centres for all affected changes, operating hours and applicable standard fee amount.
