Residents in the Cities of Brampton and Mississauga and urban areas in the Town of Caledon are advised that yard waste collection starts the week of Monday, March 12. Residents in rural areas of Caledon will have their yard waste picked up on designated Fridays.

Residents are encouraged to visit peelregion.ca/waste and use When Does It Go to check their waste management calendar or download their schedule to a personal electronic device.

Yard waste must be at the curb by 7 a.m. on a resident’s collection day. It should be placed in acceptable bins, containers and/or bags.

A bin/container used for yard waste collection must be:

  • clearly labelled “yard waste”,
  • rigid and reusable with handles that are attached or molded to the exterior,
  • smaller than 60 cm (24 in.) wide and 95 cm (38 in.) high, and,
  • less than 20 kg (44 lbs.), when full.

A Kraft brown paper bag used for yard waste collection must:

  • support a maximum weigh of 20 kg (44 lbs.) when lifted, without tearing,
  • securely close when full, and,
  • be smaller than 66 cm (26 in.) wide and 90 cm (35 in.) high.

Residents can use their old garbage container or blue/grey box to set out yard waste for collection. All repurposed containers must be in good condition and clearly labelled “yard waste” to be collected.
