Compost available for purchase at County of Simcoe waste facilities May 6 to May 25, 2024

Midhurst/April 25, 2024 – County of Simcoe residents will once again be able to purchase compost at all County waste facilities from May 6 to 25, 2024 (excluding residents from the cities of Barrie and Orillia).

Compost is a soil amendment used in gardens to add nutrients, or as top dressing for lawns to help retain moisture and is produced in-house using leaf and yard waste material generated throughout the County of Simcoe. Learn more about how the County uses your yard waste to make compost.

Compost sales are self-service, and residents should bring their shovels to load bins, truck beds, or trailers. Cost is $5 per carload or $20 per truck or trailer load, while quantities last.

Mulch is also available while quantities last at County waste facilities. Mulch can be applied to soil surfaces, around trees, paths, flower beds, slopes and erosion prone areas, and as top dressing for flower and vegetable gardens. Mulch retains moisture, regulates soil temperatures, and supresses weed growth.

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. Visit our website at
