Summer Bi-weekly Yard Waste Collection Now in Effect

From the beginning of July until September 24, 2015, your yard waste will be collected every second week. As usual, all yard waste must be in either specifically designed paper yard waste bags or in rigid, reusable and open bins labelled with a Region of Peel yard waste sticker (call 905-791-9499 for information on where to get these stickers). Please do not use plastic bags.

The following are accepted as yard waste:

  • tree trimmings, branches
  • grass clippings
  • brush, hedge trimmings
  • leaves
  • shredded paper
  • household and garden plants (soil removed)
Every household should have received the 2015/2016 Collection Calendar sometime earlier this year. In it, there is a pull-out page indicating which services will be provided each week for the whole year. Our collection day for Clarkson and Ward 2 is Tuesday.

The yard waste schedule for our area is:
  • Tuesday, July 14 and 28
  • Tuesday, August 11 and 25
  • Wednesday, September 9 and Tuesday, Sept. 22
Remember that the collection of garbage, recycling and organics is still weekly for the remainder of 2015. If you want further or more detailed information regarding curbside collection, go to www.peelregion.ca/waste/collection-schedules#curbside.
