Yard waste to be collected Saturdays in November in response to ongoing delays

The City says delays have been compounded by contractor staffing shortages

News release from the City of Barrie

The City of Barrie’s curbside collection contractor continues to experience delays with Yard Waste collection. The curbside collection is running about one week behind schedule. The ongoing delays have been compounded due to contractor staffing shortages. Crews are working Saturday (November 12) to continue catching up on yard waste collection and will continue with Saturday collection throughout November.

“We apologize for any frustration these delays have caused residents,” Chris Marchant Manager of Waste Operations. “We are working closely with our contractor to do everything we can to get all the yard waste collected as soon as possible.”

There has been no delay in garbage, organics, or recycling curbside collection and pickup of those materials remains a priority.

The City will continue to post updates on Yard Waste Collection at barrie.ca.
