·1 min read

The County of Simcoe provides a large number of services that are crucial to local residents and businesses.

Given the importance of these programs, services will remain open for much of the holiday seasons.

The County’s administration centre, including the Service Simcoe Contact Centre and Ontario Works departments will be closed to the public on December 27 and 28.

There will be no disruption to waste and recycling collection. Carts should be placed roadside on your regular collection day and pickup will be as normal.

Waste drop-off facilities will close at noon on December 24, and will remain closed on December 25 and 26, as well as January 3.

The County Archives remain closed to the public for in-person services.

Virtual assistance is closed on December 27 and 28, as well as January 3.

For LINX Transit, holiday hours are in effect with no service on the three statutory holidays, Dec. 25, Dec. 26, and Jan. 1.

Christmas tree collection will occur through January. Christmas trees must be placed curbside on Monday of your collection week by 7:00 a.m.

Collection of trees does not necessarily coincide with your garbage collection day.

You can visit or use the Simcoe County Collects app to determine your collection week
