BRAMPTON, ON (September 8, 2020) – The Region of Peel advises residents that the fall garbage exemption period (originally scheduled from Sept 14-25, 2020) is suspended in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, to minimize manual collection and ensure worker safety, while maintaining services for the long term.
Residents are reminded that:
- Unlimited amounts of garbage will not be collected.
- You can only place up to 2 extra bags on your garbage collection day. No garbage tags needed.
- Additional bags beyond the 2-bag limit will not be collected.
- Bulky items continue to be collected at the curb and accepted at Peel Community Recycling Centres (CRC's).
If residents have to dispose of extra garbage bags, they can take it to any Peel CRC, where disposal fees may apply. Check CRC locations and hours of operation.
