News release - County of Simcoe

Curbside Electronic Waste Collection returns to Simcoe County the weeks of June 17 (zone 1) and June 24 (zone 2).

New zones are in effect but please note that special collections fall on garbage weeks. To confirm your zone or for more information on other special collection days, download the new Simcoe County Collects app or visit our website,

Materials should be placed a minimum of 2 feet from your carts and set out at the curb by 7 a.m. on your collection day, regardless of the time that your regular waste is normally collected, as materials will be collected by a different truck.

Residents can recycle their old or unused electronics through a convenient E-cycling collection program. We encouraged you to place items in clear bags.

Acceptable items include:

  • Computers
  • Monitors
  • Printers
  • Televisions
  • Cellular phones
  • Video gaming consoles
  • Small appliances (toasters, vacuums, kettles, electric mixers and coffee makers)
  • Personal care items (hair dryers, electric shavers and toothbrushes)
  • Cords and small corded power tools

Please delete all personal data before placing at the curb. The County is not responsible for personal information contained on computer hard drives, motherboards or other electronic devices that may potentially store information. Electronic items collected will be processed at an approved electronics recycling facility where they are sorted, and recyclable materials are sent out for reuse.

To find out how you can recycle your electronic waste to help conserve energy and prevent toxic elements such as mercury and lead leaching into our environment, visit

Please note this program does not apply to residents of the separated cities of Barrie and Orillia. The County of Simcoe is composed of sixteen member municipalities and provides crucial public services to County residents in addition to providing paramedic and social services to the separated cities of Barrie and Orillia.
