Paper Fibres Recycling (Grey/Blue Box)

The County of Simcoe has a 2-stream recycling program currently in place, (containers & paper fibres) which must be separated with 2 recycling bins. Material must be placed out to the curb on your regular collection day by 7:00 am. To reduce blowing litter, stack recycling bins.
