Oversized & Overweight Containers
|The County of Simcoe notes that County-wide our collection contractors have been encountering increasing difficulties, at some locations, with oversized and overweight containers. The County's container size and weight restrictions have not changed with the implementation of the one bag limit. The difficulty with oversized cans is that due to the can's size it is easy to exceed the volume and weight limits.
