Thanks to Region of Peel Waste folks for demonstrating our new recycling, organics and waste bins!

Region of Peel Council recently voted to increase waste diversion target from 60% to 75%. We all have to do our part with donating reusable items, separating our recyclables and organics, to lower our contribution to landfill!
