    The south-end Barrie neighbourhood that was hit with an EF-2 tornado last week is still trying to clean up its trail of destruction left behind. As the residence in the affected area works together to get back to normal, the city started its first recycling pick-up for this neighbourhood since the tornado.

    The City of Barrie is providing special contractors that will assist in picking up bagged garbage that meets certain weight criteria at the curb. On Monday and Tuesday, there will be a contractor for tree chipping. People are asked to leave any type of tree debris on the curb by 7 a.m. There are also large plastic bins located along Coronation Parkway until Monday. Residents can throw any non-tree tornado debris in those bins.

    The city had workers cleaning public streets, boulevards, and parks just four days after the tornado. According to the City of Barrie, over 100 tonnes of tornado debris have been placed in the Barrie Landfill. The landfill is waving any disposing fees until Friday to allow residents to clean up their areas.
