Yard waste collection ends during the week of December 10 to 13, on residents’ regular collection day in Mississauga and Brampton.
This is the last chance for residents to clean out their backyards or front yards. Guidelines for disposing of yard waste are as follows:
• Small bundles of yard waste and brush must not exceed 1.2 m. and 76 cm in diameter and weigh no more than 20 kg.
•Individual branches and tree limbs must not exceed 1.2 m in length and 7.5 cm in diameter and weigh no more than 20 kg.
• Yard waste should be placed in labelled, open, rigid and reusable containers, bushel baskets, or paper yard waste bags. Old garbage cans/containers or old blue/grey boxes can be used, but containers must be in good condition and labelled yard waste.
Note that yard waste will not be collected if it is set out in plastic bags, cardboard boxes, or is in a container that weighs more than 20 kg.
