Garbage & Recycling

Waste management services for the Town of New Tecumseth are provided by the County of Simcoe. For information, please visit www.simcoe.ca or call the County of Simcoe Administration Centre Customer Service at 705-735-6901 or toll free at 1-800-263-3199.


County Council approved a 1 bag or container of garbage per house per week.  Tags are only for household garbage, and not for bulky items or yard waste.

  • Maximum 1 bag per week
  • Additional bags must display garbage tags

Note: To encourage maximum participation in the recycling and green bin programs, the price of garbage tags for waste over the one bag/week limit has increased to $3.00 per tag, sold in sheets of 5 for $15.00. The new $3 tag must be affixed in order to be eligible for collection. If you have the old, yellow, $2.00 garbage tags, click here http://www.simcoe.ca/SolidWasteManagement/Pages/tags.aspx for information on how to exchange your supply of $2.00 tags.

Garbage Container Size and Weight Limits 

The County of Simcoe notes that County-wide our collection contractors have been encountering increasing difficulties, at some locations, with oversized and overweight containers.  The County’s container size and weight restrictions have not changed with the implementation of the standardized one bag limit.  The difficulty with oversized cans is that due to the can’s size it is easy to exceed the limits for:

  • Volume max 77L (17 gallons) and/or
  • Weight max 20 kg (44 lbs) *applies to bags and cans
