Garbage, organics, and yard waste is collected as per Barrie's
curbside collection schedule. Municipal curbside collection services are available to residents and businesses. Please sort your waste for collection and have it curbside by 7am.
The City provides weekly curbside collection of natural Christmas trees (as yard waste) through January. Trees must not exceed 1.8m or 6 feet in length. Please remove all decorations and the tree stand, do not place the tree in a plastic bag, and ensure trees are not placed on or buried in a snowbank. If you're disposing of an artificial tree, first consider donating to a local charity for reuse. If it's in poor condition, it can be disposed of at the landfill.
Please do not place bins on top of snowbanks. Make sure they are visible to collectors and are out of the path of snow removal equipment. For more information visit
Winter Considerations for Curbside Collection.
Lithium ion batteries (from cell phones, drones, remote control cars, power tools etc.) cannot be disposed of in curbside garbage or recycling because doing so poses a serious fire hazard and safety threat to curbside collectors and anyone in the vicinity of collection vehicles. Please dispose of these items safely at the
Household Hazardous Waste Facility.
We have received reports of an increase in masks and gloves placed in curbside recycling bins. Masks and gloves should be disposed of in the
garbage, in securely tied bags. Cleaning wipes also go in the garbage; they cannot go in the green bin and should not be flushed.
If you're not sure where an item goes, please check the
item lookup tool.
