Simcoe County provides notice that due to the extreme heat conditions experienced recently, Waste Connections of Canada maybe commencing collection services one hour earlier on heat warning days going forward. This move is to reduce potential health and safety impacts of strenuous work in extreme heat and will be voluntary for drivers, therefore it may not affect all locations. Waste Connections has indicated that collections may occur as early as 6:00 AM but that areas serviced prior to 7:00 AM will be checked again to ensure all material is collected.

This change is being communicated to the public through messaging on, through social media as well as directly to subscribers to the ‘Simcoe County Collects’ mobile app. Residents are encouraged to download the free app through Google Play or the App Store. Residents can also subscribe for waste collection alerts at Residents can contact the County’s Customer Service Centre at 1-800-263-3199 or for additional information if required.
