Don’t Fall For The Garbage Bin Scam In Mississauga
Published May 2, 2016 at 1:22 pm
If you have received a flyer asking you to purchase a transponder tag for your garbage, do not follow the instructions — the “Ontario Bin Transponder Initiative” is a scam.
According to a recent article in the Brampton Guardian, the Region of Peel is asking residents to ignore the flyers, as no officials are aware of any such newfangled garbage initiative.
If you receive these instructions, please ignore them. Your garbage will be picked up without you unnecessarily parting with your hard-earned lucre.
The region has notified police and is asking anyone who receives a flyer to call 905-791-7800 to report it.Insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies
