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.
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.
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 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 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.
