Peel's Christmas tree collection starts next week
BRAMPTON, ON (Jan. 2, 2024) – Get your real Christmas trees and wreaths ready for curbside collection, as Peel Region will be collecting them at the curb, starting next week.
Check your waste collection calendar for your pickup day.
To set out trees for collection, residents must ensure that:
- Trees taller than 3 m. (10 ft.) are cut in half
- All plastic bags, ornaments, tinsel, nails, wire, and tree stands are removed
- Trees are not placed in, on or behind snowbanks
If you live in an apartment or condo, put your Christmas tree at the curb by the driveway entrance of your property. Be sure your tree doesn't obstruct the road or sidewalk.
Residents who miss their collection can take their Christmas trees to a Community Recycling Centre (CRC) for disposal. Trees taller than 3 m. (10 ft.) must be cut in half to be accepted. Please remove all tinsel, ornaments, plastic bags, nails, wires, and tree stands from your tree before bringing it to a CRC.
