How to dispose of fireworks after Diwali celebration
BRAMPTON, ON. (October 21, 2022) – Many residents will be lighting fireworks to celebrate the Diwali festival. Follow these guidelines when disposing of used fireworks:
- Place used or extinguished sparklers and fireworks in a bucket of water immediately after use. Soak them thoroughly overnight.
- Drain the water and put the used sparklers or fireworks in the garbage.
Fireworks are only accepted in the garbage when the above guidelines are followed. If your garbage cart is already full, excess garbage must be placed in a garbage bag at the curb. Tag the bag of excess garbage with a Region of Peel garbage tag.
Active fireworks are not collected at the curb or accepted at Community Recycling Centres. For more information, check the waste sorter.
