|I believe your collie has excess energy that needs to be vented through daily power walks or jogs. Our collie in her younger years, got 2-3 hours of exercise per day, plus herd dog training once a week. This should challenge your dog and perhaps the barking will be less. I really think exercise is the key, plus teaching your dog to stop when asked (you decide when enough is enough barking). You can start by walking 30-60 min in the morning (before work?), and 30-60 min after work, and a mini-walk before bed, plus play time. Sounds like a lot? That's what your dog needs. Have fun!
