Waste collection services have been slowed by this morning’s road closures and poor road conditions in many areas as a result of severe blowing and drifting snow overnight.
Crews are continuing to collect in Collingwood, Wasaga Beach, Tiny, Severn, Oro-Medonte and Innisfil, however, many areas remain inaccessible and waste materials are often buried at curbside further delaying service. We therefore anticipate that while collections will be substantively completed today it will be later than normal in many areas. Please leave waste materials out for collection until 7:30 p.m.
We note that some small side roads and private roads continue to be inaccessible and will not be completed today. The normal procedure for areas missed is to collect double on the next scheduled collection day, Monday February 20th. Residents are encouraged to sign up for our waste schedule alerts at www.simcoe.ca/wasteschedule to receive notification of collection changes or to check www.simcoe.ca frequently for updates.
