Old green bins, blue boxes, grey boxes or plastic resin containers no longer being used by residents, after implementation of the new cart-based garbage collection system, can be dropped off at the arena, 705 Matheson Blvd. E., from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The Region of Peel said it does not pick up the unwanted containers at the curb.
Curbside collection would cost about $3.5 million and the price tag for the drop off events is an estimated $350,000, according to waste department figures.
To get rid of the old container, residents can either attend one of the two drop-off events in their city or drive to a Community Recycling Centre.
However, according to regional officials, residents who have challenges getting to a drop off event or recycling centre can request container pickup by regional staff.
They can email the request, with their address, to email@example.com or phone 905-791-9499 to coordinate a pickup. – CINEWS
