Peel Integrated Waste Management Facility Tour. Discover how two hours can change your perception.

The Peel Integrated Waste Management Facility (PIWMF) is the largest of its kind in Canada and houses:
• a single stream Material Recovery Facility (MRF) where recyclable materials are sorted

• an organics composting plant for yard waste and green bin organics processing

The material recovery facility has a capacity to process 130,000 tonnes of Blue Box material per year.
