News release - County of Simcoe

The County of Simcoe’s popular bi-weekly curbside Leaf and Yard Waste Collection program returns on April 8 (in Zone One) and will run until the end of May 2024.

To determine your collection zone, please refer to the 2024 Waste Management Calendar, or the Simcoe County Collects App, which is free to download from the App Store or Google Play. 

The program includes the collection of leaves, grass, branches (sized and bundled appropriately), and garden waste. Residents are reminded to use kraft paper yard waste bags, cardboard boxes, or open-ended rigid containers to place out for collection. 

Bi-weekly collections coincide with garbage collection weeks in each zone. Materials for collection should be placed curbside by 7 a.m. on Monday of the collection week for each zone. Collection will occur during the week, not necessarily on residents’ regular collection day. Spring 2024 leaf and yard waste will be collected throughout the week in each zone as follows:  

Zone One 

  • April 8, 2024  
  • April 22, 2024 
  • May 6, 2024 
  • May 20, 2024 

Zone Two 

  • April 15, 2024 
  • April 29, 2024 
  • May 13, 2024 
  • May 27, 2024 

Additional leaf and yard waste collections will occur in July and during the fall program, which starts in October.  

*This schedule and program does not apply to the cities of Barrie and Orillia.
