The Region of Peel allows houses with curbside collection three garbage exemption dates every year. This means you can put out an unlimited amount of garbage on the curb for pick up without the use of garbage tags.
The next garbage exemption period occurs during the week of June 17th – 28th, 2019.
Why is the Garbage Exemption period so great?
The garbage exemption period is great as you can throw out as much garbage as you want without having to pay for extra garbage tags. It is a great opportunity to declutter your home and get rid of items that have just been collecting dust and are no longer of use to you.
Important Things To Note
- Place garbage for pick up on your garbage collection day NOT your recycling day.
- Ensure your garbage bin and other garbage for pickup is left on the curb until 8 p.m (often collection times can be delayed, so leaving garbage on the curb until 8 p.m gives adequate time for pick up).
- Smaller items should be placed in garbage bags
- Larger items placed separately on the curb
- Anything excess that does not fit in your bin should be placed beside your bin
