County to provide bi-weekly Leaf and Yard Waste Collections throughout July

Midhurst/ June 30, 2022 – The County of Simcoe’s popular curbside Leaf and Yard Waste Collection program is back for the month of July. These bi-weekly collections include leaves, grass, branches (sized and bundled appropriately), and other appropriately prepared garden waste. Residents are reminded to use kraft paper yard waste bags, compostable bags, cardboard boxes, or open-ended rigid containers when placing leaf and yard waste at their regular collection point.

Materials for collection should be placed curbside by 7 a.m. on Monday of the collection week for each area. Collection will occur during the week, not necessarily on residents’ regular garbage day. To determine your collection zone and collection weeks, please refer to the Simcoe County Collects App, which is free to download from the App Store or Google Play. The schedule is also available in the 2022 Waste Management Calendar, which was mailed to households earlier this winter or it can be found at this link.

Leaf and yard waste will be collected throughout the week in each zone as follows:

Zone One

July 4, 2022

July 18, 2022

Zone Two

July 11, 2022

July 25, 2022

This schedule and program does not apply to the 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. Visit our website at
