Opportunity for Barrie residents to keep clothes out of the landfill

Curbside collection of textiles to take place week the week of June 13

News release from City of Barrie

City of Barrie residents are invited to do some spring cleaning and help keep reusable items out of the landfill by participating in the next curbside collection of textiles (clothing, linens and shoes). The textile curbside collection will take place the week of June 13 to 17, 2022.

Donating your items is easy:

  1. Look up your textile collection day (note that it will not be the same as your regular collection day for garbage, recycling and green bin material).
  2. Place your items in a bag (preferably a clear bag, but if you don’t have a clear bag, you can use any type of waterproof bag and put a label on the bag that says “textiles”)
  3. Put your items out on the curb on your textile collection day by 7 a.m., rain or shine.

Visit or call 1-866-927-3873 to determine your collection day, to review the full list of acceptable items, or if you have questions.
