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.

Curbside Collection Notices​​

Christmas Tree Collection in January 

The City provides weekly curbside collection of natural Christmas trees (as yard ​​waste​) through ​January. Trees must not exceed 1.8m or 6 feet in length. Please remove all decorations and the tre​e stand, do not place the tree in a plastic bag, and ensure trees are not placed on or buried in a snowbank. ​If you're disposing of an artificial tree, first consider donating to a local charity for reuse. If it's in poor condition, it can be disposed of at the landfill.

Winter Bin Set Out

​​Please do not place bins on top of snowbanks. Make sure they are visible to collectors and are out of the path of snow removal equipment. For more information visit Winter Considerations for Curbside Collection​.

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.
