Full Recycling And Green Bin Program Coming For Multi Unit Residences In Barrie

To be phased in a year from now

Barrie City Council has decided to move forward with a garbage collection policy for apartment dwellers, same as what individual homeowners need to do – sorting recyclables and organic waste, and a two bag limit. It’ll be phased in starting in January 2017. Director of Environmental Planning, John Thompson, says the city must first get through a green bin pilot program for apartments which will begin soon in 11 of Barrie’s nearly 300 multi-unit residential buildings.
