New recycling depot set to open at City’s landfill site

The City is opening a recycling depot at the lower gate area of the landfill, starting Tuesday, to help reduce landfill wait times and make dropping off recycling and household hazardous waste materials more efficient for residents.
The depot will operate Tuesday through Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., and will accept recyclable materials that do not carry a disposal fee, such as:
• Tires, electronic waste, blue/grey box materials, green bin organics, corrugated cardboard, scrap metal.
Household hazardous waste materials will also be accepted at the lower gate facility on Saturdays only. The landfill is located at 272 Ferndale Drive North. For more information, visit barrie.ca/landfill or call 705-739-4219.
