Share Your Thoughts on Short Term Accomodations in Mississauga
The City of Mississauga is hosting a drop-in open house to share information and hear from residents on the future of short-term rental accommodations in Mississauga.

At the drop-in open house, residents and stakeholders will be able to view and share their thoughts on the various regulatory options and proposed amendments to the Zoning By-law.

What:      Drop-in Open House – Short-Term Accommodations in Mississauga
Where:    Civic Centre, Committee Room D, 2nd Floor, 300 City Centre Drive, Mississauga       [map]
When:     Monday, March 6, 2017
Time:      3 to 8 p.m.
Residents can also complete an online survey and review the City’s report on the current status and options for regulating short-term accommodations in Mississauga.

Opportunities for short-term accommodation (STA) have grown rapidly in cities around the world, including Mississauga. People can connect online with those who have a spare room, entire apartment, or house to rent out on a short-term basis, usually less than 30 days.

City staff will include input received in a final recommendation report to the City’s Planning and Development Committee later in 2017.
Residents are Reminded to Properly Dispose of Their Household Medical Waste and Sharps
The Region of Peel would like to remind residents who generate household medical waste and sharps that they need to properly dispose of them.  Plastics that have been used for household medical waste cannot go in recycling. They must be double-bagged and placed in the garbage.

Household medical waste (other than sharps) includes dialysis tubing, filters, disposable towels and sheets, colostomy bags, IV bags and tubing, gastric and nasal tubes, and soiled dressings and incontinence products. They must be double-bagged and placed in the garbage.

Residents who use sharps (needles, syringes and lancets) should obtain a free biohazard container from one of the Region’s six Community Recycling Centres (CRCs) so that they can:
  • place their sharps in it,
  • return the biohazard container filled with the sharps to a CRC for free disposal, and
  • get a free replacement biohazard container.
Please note: the sharps should not be placed in any other container or cart.

Residents can also visit pharmacies participating in the Ontario Sharps Collection Program for a similar biohazard container service. (Check: healthsteward.ca/returns/Ontario)

If residents have more household medical waste than will fit in their garbage, they should contact the Region at 905-791-9499 or wasteinquiry@peelregion.ca or call 905-584-2216 toll-free in Caledon to inquire about how to be added to the Region’s medical waste exemption list. 
Yard Waste Collection Resumes March 13th
Residents will receive weekly yard waste collection commencing March 14 to June 26, 2017, bi-weekly yard waste collection from July 10 to September 18, 2017 on their recycling week, and return to weekly collection on October 2nd to December 11th, 2017. 

Residents can go online to  peelregion.ca/waste and enter their address to receive personalized  information related to their collection schedule, download the calendar or add the schedule to their electronic device.
