If you live in the Region of Peel (Brampton, Mississauga or Caledon), you should note that a change is coming to your waste collection routine this month.
The region recently announced that yard waste collection starts the week of March 8.
Residents in rural areas of Caledon will have their yard waste picked up on designated Fridays.
The region says yard waste must be at the curb by 7 a.m. on your collection day.
As for how to put it out, residents should place their yard waste at the curb in kraft yard waste bags (plastic bags will not be accepted), or containers that are clearly labelled “yard waste” by marker or sticker.
Peel Region no longer accepts grass clippings at the curb or at Community Recycling Centres.
Leaves and yard rakings with debris (including spring dead grass), tree trimmings, branches, brush, and hedge trimmings are accepted as yard waste.
