Peel Region will end curbside collection of large home appliances at the end of June.

Items such as refrigerators, stoves, iceboxes and freezers, washing machines and dryers, furnaces and dehumidifiers, hot water tanks and metal bath tubs will not be picked by the region’s waste collection personnel after June 30.

“Our goal is to meet residents’ needs while delivering cost-effective services,” said Waste Management Director Norm Lee in a news release. “Due to low uptake of the service, coupled with the fact that there are charitable and private organizations picking up appliances, and an ongoing challenge to complete the pick up before scrap metal collectors, it became apparent that it was no longer necessary for the region to continue delivering this curbside service.” – CINEWS

    We may expect to see huge pile up of garbage on the road. It has to be planned well by region.
