Waste Collection Changes for the Thanksgiving Day Holiday Collection Schedule

There will be no garbage, organics, recycling, and yard waste collection on Thanksgiving Monday, October 11th, 2021 in the City of Barrie.

​Collection during the week of this holiday will occur ONE day later for the remainder of the week.

Collection times may be affected by routing changes. Placing materials curbside by 7:00am helps ensure collection.

Yard Waste collection will occur weekly during the months of October and November.

Battery Collection Week: November 1–5, 2021

Bags will be delivered via mail to all Barrie households the week of October 18. The City's waste contractor will be picking up batteries at the curb the week of November 1 to 5. 

Do not use the battery bag to store batteries. The batteries should be placed in the bag on the day of the curbside collection. ​On the day of your regular collection day, put dead batteries in the battery collection bag, seal it, and put it out at your curb beside your garbage bag, green bin, or recycling boxes.​​ Visit the battery collection page​ for more information 

Please do not Dispose of Lithium Ion Batteries​ Curbside

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.

2021 ​Waste Audits​​

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.​

Masks, Gloves, and Cleaning Wipes go in Garbage

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.

Sorting and Packaging Changes Due to COVID-19

In an effort to keep curbside collection drivers safe during this time, please:

  • place facial tissues, paper towels and napkins in a securely tied garbage bag instead of the green bin.
  • place garbage in securely tied garbage/plastic bags, not loose in your garbage can.   ​​
  • place organics in securely tied compostable bags, not loose in the green bin.​
  • keep a distance of 2 metres from curbside collection drivers.
