The Creative Zone – a free recycling paradise!
The Creative Zone is a partnership comprised of Family Day Care Services, the Peel District School Board, the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board, the YMCA of Greater Toronto, PLASP and the Region of Peel.
We are reopening on Monday, April 4th, 2022!
After being closed for the last two years due to the pandemic, we are pleased to announce our reopening. Visits are by appointment only (please see “Visiting the Creative Zone” below).
Teachers from the Peel District School Board, Kindergarten staff from the Dufferin Peel Catholic School Board and child care operators in Peel are invited to visit The Creative Zone to see the hundreds of amazing materials that can enhance and expand their classroom resources.
One person’s trash is another person’s treasure.

Sponsorship and Donations
Corporate sponsorship and individual donations help The Creative Zone research new donors of materials and expand services in the community. Becoming a corporate sponsor will increase your company profile in the community, support creative learning, enhance recycling opportunities and reduce landfill.
For businesses, The Creative Zone may be able to offer a cost-effective alternative for surplus product or materials destined for the garbage. Unsure if we could use your materials? Give us a call, and we’ll advise if we can offer your materials a new home! If it’s a match, we’ll arrange pick-up.
Individual donations to support The Creative Zone are gratefully accepted. A receipt for income tax purposes will be issued for donations of $20.00 or more.
