The County of Simcoe apologizes for the delays and impacts to your curbside waste collection services.

Our goal is to pick up your materials on your scheduled day each week. We have worked with our contractor to minimize impacts and assist residents in knowing what to do when misses occur.

If your area is missed, please take the following steps:

  • Place materials out the following day by 7 a.m. and leave out until 8 p.m. (one extra day only)
  • If collection doesn't occur the following day, please hold your materials until Saturday, when trucks will be returning to missed areas and place materials out by 7 a.m. and leave out until 8 p.m. 

​​​​​​The County communicates collection impacts for your specific location and updates on returns through the Simcoe County Collects app, which is free to download on Google Play or the App Store. Notices are also posted on​. If you did not receive collection service by end of day Saturday please contact Service Simcoe at 1-800-263-3199 or
