Waste Facilities

​As the County continues to support resid​ents and communities during the pandemic, it has now reopened all Waste Facilities for public and business use. When using these facilities, we strongly encourage residents to apply the same public health precautions/measures they would when using other open and available services during the pandemic. 

​We further recommend that customers practice the following precautions upon entering the Waste Facility​:

  1. Limit the number of trips to the sites (just like the grocery store) – where reasonable avoid trips that would not meet the residential minimum $10 fee (up to 70kg) and assess whether items can be stored at your household for a future trip.
  2. Wearing non-medical masks or face coverings may be an added way to protect others around you, particularly where physical distancing may be challenging.
  3. When at a waste site, stay at least 2 metres (or 6 feet) away from other people whenever possible.
  4. Avoid using the site during peak times (first opening day of the week) to avoid large line-ups. Typically, wait times are shorter mid-week and during unfavorable weather conditions.   ​​

Some sites will have coverage on Saturdays to support the needs of residents and businesses. Decisions on sites that have limited hours, were made due to health and safety guidelines and staffing/resourcing limitations due to COVID-19.​

The following restrictions and COVID-19 safety measures are in effect:​

  • Staff will not work in groups
  • Speaker systems installed at weigh scales to allow for staff/customer transaction through a closed window  
  • Increased sanitization and PPE requirements for staff    
  • Implementing a $10.00 minimum fee limit for residential car and truck drop-offs to reduce scale contact with customers and discourage small, non-urgent/critical loads (mattresses and fridges will be charged separately as always)  NOTE: larger loads (estimated to be over the $10 minimum based on weight) will continue to be weighed and charged accordingly based on staff's discretion
  • Debit and credit only from an exterior terminal - tap is the preferred option 
  • Limiting vehicles entering the facility at any given time to reduce contact among customers and employees - this could lead to longer wait times
  • Staff will not support individuals with unloading items from customers' vehicles   
  • I​ncreased safety and instructional signage must be obeyed  

Landfill Permit Holders:

  • Residents with a valid landfill permit will receive instructions in the mail or call Service Simcoe below:

Service Simcoe will continue to be operational for Phone or Email service, service@simcoe.ca  or 800-263-3199.

To receive live updates regarding waste services directly, residents can download the free Simcoe County Collects app through Google Play or the App Store.

The County of Simcoe is responsible for 3 active landfill sites and 5 transfer stations in addition to managing numerous closed landfill sites. For additional information please review the frequently asked questions section.
