Changes are coming to waste collection – Open House February 11

Cart banner

In 2016, the Region of Peel is changing to cart-based, bi-weekly waste collection. All residents who have curbside pick up need to choose the cart sizes that suit their household by March 31, 2015.

The Region will be hosting an open house on Wednesday, February 11 from 4:30pm to 8:30pm at the Malton Community Centre. Drop by to learn more about the program, ask questions and see the carts to help determine what size works best for you.

Watch the video below, come to an open house and learn more about the program on the Region of Peel’s website.

Moving to a cart-based system will save millions of dollars, help reduce the amount of waste going to landfill, and reduce the number of waste collection vehicles on the road.

Winter Maintenance Program

The City’s winter maintenance crew works tirelessly when the weather turns to snow, slush and ice.

You can find information about snow removal – including plow routes and live updates; winter parking; and levels of service on the Winter Maintenance Program website.

Here are some other ways you can get information:

Please remember that the City does not plow every sidewalk – be a good neighbour and help out the people in your community who could use a hand!

Have your say in the City’s budget

In the coming weeks, Council will be meeting regularly to map out the City’s 2015 budget.

You can get more information about where the City gets its revenue and how its spent on the Budget Highlights website. Then use the Budget Allocator Tool to let the City know how you would assign the funds to: Fire & Emergency, Traffic, Roads & Transportation, Parks & Forestry, Libraries, Facilities, and Recreation.

I would love to hear from you about your priorities for Ward 5 – please email me at or call 905-896-5500.
