Battery Collection

The Region of Peel is collecting single-use household batteries from the curb in March and November. Our first Battery Pickup Day is Monday, March 21, 2016

Gather your A, AA, AAA, C, D, 9 volt and button cell batteries. Residents with curbside collection will receive a battery collection bag in the mail the first week of March. Put your batteries in the bag and seal it. You can also put your batteries in a regular zip-locked bag. Learn more about battery collection by watching this video or reading this page.

Yard Waste Collection starts in March

With Spring around the corner, the Region of Peel begins weekly Yard Waste collection the week of March 14, 2016. Our collection day in Clarkson/Lorne Park is Monday -- that means our first YW pickup is on Monday, March 14, 2016.

Of Note: -- Shredded paper can be disposed of with your yard waste!

Changes to Waste/Recycling Collection Schedule Now in Effect

As of the beginning of January 2016, the proposed changes to the weekly garbage and recycling schedule are now in effect.

The changes are as follows:

We are now using the new waste, recycling and organics bins that were delivered in December. Each bin you received has a special code that is printed on the side indicating your address.

You selected either small, medium or large waste and recycling bins. If you have discovered that the size you chose is either too small or too large for the amount you put out every two weeks, you may contact the Region of Peel Wasteline by phone or through their website to change to a different size.

  • Carts cannot be exchanged until April 1, 2016.
  • From April 1 to April 30, 2016, cart exchanges are FREE
  •  Starting May 1, 2016, an exchange fee of $25 per cart will apply (covers the cost to pick up and clean your carts and deliver and register new ones
What about the old blue bins and organics bins we used before? Go to for more information.
