​New Automated Cart Collection in the County of Simcoe

​​T​he County is rolling out an autom​ated cart collection system on November 1, 2021. This system is an easy and safe solution to curbside waste collection services.​

  • On average, these vertical carts use 50% less floor space to store waste (compared to equivalent amounts in current open bin/bag system)​.
  • Consolidate a variety of smaller bins, bags and containers into three​ carts​.
  • Good for the environment with more room for organics​.
  • Lids on all carts protect against windblown litter and impacts from critters.
  • Cut down on lifting and trips to the curb! With wheels and ergonomic handles, just roll out two carts each week.
  • Safer for everyone with touchless automated collection​.
  • Proven and preferred in many other communities. 
  • Carts will also ensure continuity of collection service and help to reduce potential for wide spread collection impacts previously experienced​​.

​For more details on this new carts system, please visit carts.simcoe.ca

You can also find more information on the County's Frequently Asked Questi​ons​ page.
