If you’ve relied on your neighbours putting out their garbage to figure out whether it’s garbage day or recycling day on your street, it’s time to have a look at the Brampton garbage pickup schedule.

For most households in Brampton, garbage and recycling pickup happens every other week, and every area is different so the Region of Peel has created an interactive portal where you can check your waste collection schedule. Just throw in your address and it’ll provide all the information you need.

Organics are picked up every week so you can put your green bin out without having to fret, and yard waste has its own schedule that will also appear on your pickup schedule.

There are a few days a year (i.e. all stat holidays) on which curbside pickup doesn’t happen. Don’t expect your garbage pickup on:

  • New Year’s Day
  • Family Day
  • Good Friday
  • Victoria Day
  • Canada Day
  • Civic Holiday
  • Labour Day
  • Thanksgiving Day
  • Christmas Day
  • Boxing Day

The Region of Peel also has some tips for making garbage day run as smoothly as possible. They recommend putting your waste on the curb by 7 a.m. on collection day to make sure you don’t miss the truck. But don’t forget you aren’t allowed to put it out before 7 p.m. the night before

Individual bags of garbage and containers shouldn’t weigh more than 44 pounds, and you should always keep your waste separate from your neighbours’. Naturally, the Region asks hockey nets and basketball posts be removed from the street to allow trucks to pass easily. If you’ve run out of space in your garbage you can order excess bag tags here.
