Signs will be posted on contracted vehicle indicating that the contractor is working on behalf of the City of Barrie.​

​Weekly Yard Waste Collection April through June​

Yard waste collection occurs weekly during the April, May, and June.

Masks & Gloves are not Recycled

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 go in Garbage Bag

Cleaning wipes 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.
