Some changes are coming for garbage and recycling pick up in Simcoe. Roughly 1800 homes and business will be affected as different routes have been laid out to begin on December 3rd.
The changes come in part to the growing population and also supporting the Simcoe Downtown Revitalization Team.
Currently, the Simcoe BIA area receives waste collection on Tuesdays, but with many stores not open Sunday and or Mondays, waste is often left on the curb on Saturday.
This has contributed to uncleanliness in downtown Simcoe due to wind-blown litter and ripped trash bags.
Garbage pick up will be Wednesday now in Downtown Simcoe.
These new routes will still need a final stamp of approval from council on Tuesday.
