Important Recycling News for Brampton
Spring means a lot of things: better weather (generally speaking), more sunshine, more colourful outfits and some changes to garbage and recycling pickup.
While you know changes are coming in terms of yard waste, you should also note that the Region of Peel's spring 2019 battery collection period is upon us.
The region says used batteries will be collected on residents' recycling collection day during the April 15 - 26 battery collection period.

The region says acceptable batteries for curbside collection include single-use A, AA, AAA, C, D, 9 volt and button cell household batteries.
To dispose of old batteries, put them in a clear, sealable bag. On your collection day, place the bag of batteries on top of your closed organics cart. If you don't have an organics cart, place your bag of batteries beside your filled recycling bags.
If you live in a multi-residential or condominium building, you can take your household batteries to any Peel Community Recycling Centre (CRC) or drop them in battery drop-off barrels throughout Mississauga, Brampton and Caledon.
Residents should also note that they don't have to hold onto used household batteries until spring every year—everyone is free to drop them off at a CRC anytime.
