RE: COVID 19: Supporting Public Health’s call to avoid travel

“This past Friday our Medical Officer of Health, Dr. Piotr Oglaza issued a statement asking all residents in our communities to avoid unnecessary travel to other regions of the province,” said Reeve Phiilips “Dr. Oglaza’s request is one that I and my council fully support. The risk to our residents from COVID-19 is real and we need to take individual actions, like avoiding unnecessary travel, to keep ourselves and our neighbours safe.” said Reeve Phillips

“We urge everyone in our municipality to follow Dr. Oglaza’s advice. It just makes good sense. If we all work together, we can protect each other. Let us do our part to keep our County and our municipality in the green zone!” concluded Reeve Phillips.

Quinte Waste Solutions- Program Update

Thursday October 29, 2020
https://quinterecycling.org/hazardous-waste/battery-recycling-program/
As of July 1, 2020, following the wind up of Stewardship Ontario’s battery recycling program on June 30, 2020, battery producers are individually accountable and financially responsible for collecting and reusing, refurbishing or recycling their batteries when consumers discard them. With the regulations on battery recycling change, this also means, that how we collect dead batteries from residents has also changed.

At this time, there will be no curbside collection during the Fall of 2020. You can, however, still bring batteries to our Household Hazardous & Electronic Waste Depot located at 75 Wallbridge Cres in Belleville during seasonal operating hours. As well as our Material Recovery Facility located at 270 West Street in Trenton during regular business hours.

“Having conferred with my fellow County Councillors and our senior leadership team it is my opinion that it is necessary for me as Warden, to make the declaration at this time. There are four main reasons for this critical action,” said Phillips:

 Taking the necessary actions to support the health and safety of our staff;
 To support where we can, the operations of our local member municipalities.
“Yesterday, I spoke with Mayors of the Cities of Belleville, Quinte West and Prince Edward County about the declaration. Both Mayor Ferguson from Prince Edward County and Mayor Harrison from Quinte West advised that they intend on making their declarations simultaneously with Hastings County. As neighbours and partners in the provision of critical services to our residents and businesses it is important for us to work together as we deal with this pandemic,” Phillips stated.

“Let me also make it clear that the County of Hastings has already taken steps to ensure that it has its continuity of operations plans in place and continues to deliver essential/critical services to the public.
