Public Notice

Styrofoam Must be Bagged as of January 1, 2021

​Planning a trip to the landfill? Please ensure that all Styrofoam packaging is bagged prior to arrival or it will not be accepted. This policy takes effect January 1st, 2021.

Bagging Styrofoam will reduce the impacts of windblown litter and contamination of other diversion materials at the landfill. Any type of bag can be utilized, as long as it can be secured in such a way that prevents the loose material from falling out.

Styrofoam is not accepted in the County's recycling program; tipping fees will be applied.

If you have any questions, Service Simcoe continues to be operational for Phone or Email service, service@simcoe.ca or 800-263-3199. ​​
