Peel suspends winter garbage exemption period due to rising COVID-19 cases


Peel Region is advising residents of Mississauga, Brampton and Caledon that the winter garbage exemption period (originally scheduled from January 24 to February 4) is suspended.

Officials said this is being done in response to the record rise in COVID-19 cases, and to ensure the health and safety of essential front-line staff while maintaining Regional services for the long term.

Residents must use tags to dispose of excess garbage bags. Untagged garbage will not be collected. However, bulky item collection will continue every garbage pick up day.

Residents can visit to order garbage tags or call 905-791-9499 (905-584-2216 for Caledon residents).

Excess garbage and bulky items can also be taken to any Peel Community Recycling Centre (CRC), where disposal fees will apply. The CRCs only accept credit/debit payment. Cash payments are not accepted.

Check for locations and hours of operation.
