Hello Ward 6 Residents! It’s that wonderful time of year to Spring into Clean with the City of Barrie!
I am looking for volunteers to help me spring clean the Ardagh Area Trail – Penville Entrance, April 27th from 9am – 1pm.
If you are interested in joining me, please email me at Natalie.Harris@barrie.ca.
To clarify further Spring into Clean is annual clean-up of Municipal Parks and Greenspaces ONLY not private property and yards.
Please ensure that you use ONLY the bags provided to identify your pile of collected garbage for the designated collection vehicles. ONLY these bags will be picked up. Please remember this clean-up is for public spaces and parks only, not for private residences and properties. Collection will not occur if there is suspicion of private garbage being included.
Any large items found in the clean-up that acceptable for land-filling can be placed with the pile of bagged litter/garbage. Any large items found that are not acceptable for land-filling (i.e. scrap metal, electronics, paints, refrigerants, tires, etc.) must be placed in a separate pile from the bagged litter/garbage (by an adult in charge). City staff must be notified immediately of such items. Please notify me at the “Day-Of” number given below of any large items found that are not acceptable for land-filling.
Please note: Yard waste is NOT included in this clean-up. Yard waste may be placed curbside in paper bags or rigid containers for collection on the regular collection day for your area. Yard waste collection is weekly for April, May and June.
Hazardous waste protocol
We do not encourage anyone to take it upon themselves to remove broken glass. If broken glass is found and you do not feel 100% comfortable removing it, please call the “day-of” contact number and be sure to make a note of the area. Please do NOT take it upon yourself to remove any needles. Please call the “day-of” contact or the Simcoe County District Health Unit (705-721-7520) if one is found.
Note: If you’re not sure whether an item is hazardous, please exercise caution and treat the item as if it were. Make note of the location and call the “day-of” contact.
