Garbage, Recycling & Organics

In addition to curbside collection, the City of Barrie provides full disposal and recycling services at the Environmental Centre, education and promotion of waste reduction and diversion programs, and long term planning for waste management.

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!
