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.
Collection is currently starting at 7am each weekday morning. During
Environment Canada-declared severe heat and humidity warnings, the City’s waste contractor will start curbside collection at 5:30am. Notification of early collection start time will be posted on this webpage,
Pingstreet by 5pm the day prior to each impacted collection day.
E-bulletins will also be sent to impacted residents. If early collection is called, please put waste curbside after 7pm the night before your collection day.
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 Hazardous Waste Depot.
The first collection in 2021 took place the week of May 31 to June 4, 2021. There will be a second textile curbside collection in fall 2021, and there will also be textile collection bins installed at City facilities in the near future. Visit
recyclingrewards.com/barrie or call 1-866-927-3873 for more information about the program.
The City is conducting waste audits in 2021 to instruct, guide, support and measure the success of waste collection, processing and education programs. A waste study contractor will collect waste from selected residential locations. Signs are posted on contracted vehicles indicating that the contractor is working on behalf of the City.
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 cannot go in the green bin and should not be flushed.
