County of Simcoe Waste Management

PUBLIC NOTICE - County of Simcoe Waste & Recycling Collection Change

The County of Simcoe is changing curbside waste collections to bring consistency and predictability back to pick-up schedules and support the growth of the County's green bin program.

Starting February 3, 2020, garbage and recycling collection will occur on alternating weeks, while green bin collection will continue every week. During the week of February 3 to 7, residents will receive garbage and green bin collection only. The following week (February 10 to 14), residents will receive recycling and green bin collection only. Collections will alternate on this schedule moving forward.

What this means starting February 3, 2020:

  • No change to your regular collection day. Collection times will change, so have your materials out by 7 a.m. on your collection day
  • Green bin collection will continue to occur every week
  • Garbage and recycling collection will alternate every other week (one week garbage the next week recycling)
  • Residents can set out two bags/containers of garbage every other week (weight and size restrictions still apply)
  • Recycling no longer needs to be separated into different bins.  Materials will be sorted later in the process
  • Excess recyclables can be placed in bins, cardboard boxes or see-through plastic bags

The County is hopeful this change will address the labour challenges experienced by its waste collection contractor throughout 2019 by reducing the number of collection vehicles required each day. This change will also support the environment and encourage residents to positively adjust their waste habits.

The best way to track your collection week is through the free Simcoe County Collects App. Residents can also call 1-800-263-3199 to sign up for weekly phone reminders and alerts. Full details about the change are located at:​

Thank you.

​Public WorksSign Installations

Please note, when posting small temporary signage on roadsides for events, advertising or information that signs installations are required to be back off the road allowance on private property. Some resident are unaware of the Municipal road allowance and believe that their property extends right to the edge of the road to where they are maintaining their lawns or driveways. The road allowance is approximately 10 meters from the centerline of the road or at the point where fence lines, bell boxes and hydro poles are located. Signs that are installed within the road allowance are in contravention of Road By-law 12-31 and will be removed by Township Staff so they do not interfere with Township maintenance activities.
Larger permanent signs even though on private property may still require Township permits.
