Improvements are coming to the County of Simcoe’s curbside waste collections schedule.
In a bid to bring predictability back to the scheduling, the County says starting February 3rd 2020, garbage and recycling collection will occur on alternating weeks, while green bin collection will continue every week.
Collection days are not changing, but collection times will be adjusted.
Residents are reminded to have materials out to the curb by 7 am on their regular collection day.
“Resolving the impacts to waste collections and restoring consistency and predictability to pick-up schedules are top priorities for County Council and our staff,” says Warden George Cornell. “We sincerely apologize for the delays that our residents have experienced for the last few months and these changes will assist our contractor with their staffing challenges by reducing the number of drivers required each day. This transition will also mitigate the need to increase our costs for alternate solutions, benefit the environment and help restore confidence that your waste materials will be collected on schedule.”
