The Region of Peel is working with the Kidney Foundation of Canada on a pilot project to collect unwanted textiles from residents’ homes. The results of this pilot will be used to inform the Region’s Waste Management Strategic Advisory Committee on whether a textile collection initiative is something we should look at in the future.

One pilot has been completed in Ward 2, and the next area selected is in the Kennedy/Matheson area of Ward 5. Approximately 900 homes will receive notification from the Kidney Foundation in mid-November, with collection scheduled for mid-December.
