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 future of waste management includes a
circular economy. This means we need to rethink the traditional three Rs (reduce, reuse, recycle) and consider the value of materials and products before they become waste.
Let's rethink waste!
Due to the health risk that extreme heat poses
for manual curbside waste collectors, when Environment Canada projects a
daily air temperature of 30°C or higher, or a humidex of 35°C or higher,
waste collection could commence at 5:30am. If these temperatures are
forecasted, residents will be asked to put their waste out for curbside collection any
time after 7pm the night before, or before 5:30am on collection day. However,
waste placed curbside by 7am on collection day will still be collected.
Please check here (Curbside Collection Notices) for the most up-to-date information or follow the City on Twitter and Facebook, register for the e-bulletin and/or download the mobile app to receive notice via these channels.
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.
