News release – City of Barrie

City of Barrie residents are encouraged to help keep reusable items out of the landfill by participating in the next curbside collection of textiles (clothing, linens and shoes).

The next textile curbside collection will take place next week, from May 8 to May 12, 2023.

  1. Confirm your textile collection day (note that it will not be the same as your regular collection day for garbage, recycling and green bin material).
  2. Place your items in a bag (preferably a clear bag, but if you don’t have a clear bag, you can use any type of waterproof bag and put a note on the bag that says “textiles”).
  3. Put your items out on the curb on your textile collection day by 7 a.m., rain or shine. The bags will be picked up by Recycling Rewards trucks before 5 p.m. on your textile collection day.

Visit recyclingrewards.com/barrie, call 1-866-927-3873, or email info@recyclingrewards.com to determine your textile collection day, to review the full list of acceptable items, or if you have questions.

Barrie has two curbside textile collections per year, and the next collection will take place in September.

There are also four textile bins at facilities across the city that accept textile donations year-round. The bin locations are as follows: Operations Centre at 165 Ferndale Drive North, Wastewater Maintenance Facility at 167 Bradford Street, Sadlon Arena at 555 Bayview Drive, and Allandale Recreation Centre at 190 Bayview Drive.
