New recycling depot opens today at Barrie landfill site; no more waiting in line at the weigh scale

Open Tuesday to Saturday

Dropping off recycling and hazardous household waste at Barrie’s landfill site gets easier today.

A recycling depot opens at the entrance to the site off Ferndale Drive meaning no more waiting in line at the weigh scale.

This facility will help reduce landfill wait times and make dropping off recycling and household hazardous waste materials more efficient for residents.

You still have to provide proof you’re a Barrie resident.

The Recycling Depot will operate Tuesday through Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and will accept recyclable materials that do not carry a disposal fee, such as:

  • Tires
  • Electronic waste
  • Blue/Grey box materials
  • Green Bin organics
  • Corrugated cardboard
  • Scrap metal 

Household hazardous waste materials will be accepted at the lower gate facility on Saturdays only.
