- Individual bags and containers must not weigh more than 20 kg (44 lbs) each.

Collection for multi-unit dwellings
If you live in a multi-unit residence such as an apartment or condo, please contact your property management about collection services for your building.
Property managers or superintendents provide each multi-residential unit with a free, reusable bag for recyclables. Use your reusable bag to take your loose, acceptable items to your building's recycling bin.

The Region provides and replaces garbage, recycling and organics (green) carts to applicable residents living in Peel.
Your garbage and recycling carts need to store two weeks' worth of waste. If you are moving/have moved into a resale home, please use your existing carts for few months to help you decide if they’re the right size.
If you are a tenant moving into a rented property, please use the carts that are already at your new home.
