NOTICE: Ameliasburgh and Milford landfill sites to remain open on Wednesdays through June

The County of Prince Edward will continue to operate three landfill and transfer sites on Wednesdays during May and June.

In addition to operating on Saturdays, the Picton, Ameliasburgh, and Milford sites will be open on Wednesdays from 8 am until 4 pm. The municipality is opening the Ameliasburgh and Milford sites on Wednesdays to help alleviate traffic and wait times.

All of the municipality’s landfill and transfer sites are open on Saturdays.

The municipality is reminding residents to carefully consider the non-essential trips they are taking during the COVID-19 pandemic. Residents should hold on to yard waste, brush, leaves, and other waste if possible until after emergency measures are lifted.

Residents are urged to use curbside waste pick-up for garbage, compost, and recyclables. The municipality is also allowing residents to put out one untagged bag of garbage per week until June 1, 2020. For information about purchasing green bins or blue boxes, contact Customer Service at 613.476.2148 extension 1023 or 613.962.9108 ext. 1023 or email info@pecounty.on.ca.

Longer line-ups and wait times at all landfill and transfer sites are expected as the municipality enforces physical distancing measures. The municipality is limiting the number of people allowed into the sites at one time. Residents should have waste and recycling separated and recycling properly sorted before arriving at a site.

For people visiting the Milford site (1132 Old Milford Road), please avoid stopping on the curve between McKinley Crossroad and Jackson Falls Road when waiting to enter the site.
