Garbage and Debris

Region of Peel waste carts

Waste carts (for garbage, recycling and organics) provided by the Region of Peel are not permitted to be stored in the front yard facing a street. They must be stored in the garage, side yard between houses, or back yard.

However, some residents (primarily those who live in townhouses) face space constraints due to single-car driveway and garage, no side yard, and no access to the rear yard other than through the house. In such properties, if the garage is required for car parking, and there is no other available space, residents may be permitted to store waste carts in the front yard adjacent to the building.
 
To report improper storage of waste carts, call 311 or use the PingStreet app’s “Report a Problem” feature.
