Helpful tip

On waste collection days during the winter season, make sure to place all items including your garbage, recycling and organic bins at least 1.2 to 2.0 metres (4 to 6 feet) inside your driveway to prevent accidental impact with snow plows.

Bag tags

You can put out two garbage bags each garbage collection week. If you'd like to put out an additional garbage bag, you need to attach a bag tag to any additional garbage bags. You can use up to six garbage bag tags at a time for a total of eight garbage bags.

It costs $15 for five bag tags and you can purchase tags at the following locations:

Transfer stations

You can use any of the County of Simcoe Landfill Sites and Transfer stations for large items.
