Curbside Collection

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.

Rethink Waste & Journey Towards a Circular Economy

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!

Curbside Collection Notices​​

Collection changes on Monday, May 23 (Victoria Day)

There will be no garbage, green bin, recycling box or yard waste collection on Monday, May 23, 2022. Collection is moved to the next day for the remainder of the week. Please ensure all items are curbside by 7 a.m.

Curbside Textile Collection: June 13 to 17, 2022

​Donate your used clothing, linens, shoes, etc. during the week of June 13 to 17, 2022. Look up your textile collection day (note that it will not be the same as your regular collection day for garbage, recycling and green bin material) on the Recycling Rewards website​. Place your items in a bag and put it out on the curb on your textile collection day no later than 7 a.m., rain or shine. Visit​ or call 1-866-927-3873 to determine your collection day, to revi​ew the full list of acceptable items, ​or if you have questions.  ​

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 Household Hazardous Waste Facility.

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.
