Barrie's leaves, weeds and grass clippings schedule

Put your yard waste bags or containers out at the curb by Monday at 7 a.m. June 17, 2024. (Submitted by City of Barrrie) Put your yard waste bags or containers out at the curb by Monday at 7 a.m. June 17, 2024. (Submitted by City of Barrrie)

Roll down the rim and place your brown bags at the curb.

Effective today, residents are asked to place yard waste materials curbside by 7 a.m. on their regular collection day of their yard waste week (alternate to their garbage collection week).

Yard waste will be collected before end of day Friday.

Yard waste collection occurs every other week from April through November.

Acceptable yard waste containers include:

• garbage cans up to 120 litres (must have exterior handles)

• paper leaf and yard waste bags

Yard waste collection tip:

Roll the tops of the yard waste bags closed and place the bags as close together as possible at the curb to help keep them dry. If bags become damaged by weather, the contractor will still collect the bags. Should a bag break while being transferred, the contractor is responsible for cleanup.

Tax bill information error:

A flyer about yard waste was included with the city’s final tax bills. This information is now out of date and does not reflect the changes coming into effect June 17.

The final tax bill process from start to finish takes several weeks, and unfortunately some residents are receiving the out-of-date flyer as the city implements yard waste changes on Monday. We apologize for the timing of this and any confusion it has caused for residents. Top Stories
