NOTICE: Quinte Trash Bash postponed

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak, the Quinte Trash Bash planning committee has decided to postpone the annual event until further notice to help ensure the safety of residents and volunteers.

Held each spring for the last 20 years, the Quinte Trash Bash brings people together to clean up roadsides, parks, and sidewalks in Prince Edward County, Belleville, Quinte West, and Tyendinaga Township. Participation is strong every year with thousands of residents, schools, businesses, and groups volunteering their time to clean up the region.

Litter is especially visible this time of year and a number of residents are collecting garbage along trails and sidewalks when out for a walk. This is a great way to stay active but please follow these precautions:

• Wear gloves
• Use a garbage picker if you have one
• Practice physical distancing of at least two metres apart from others
• Wash your hands with soap and water as soon as you get home

For updates on this event, please visit the official website at www.quintetrashbash.ca.   

Up to date information on the County’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic is posted on the County website: www.thecounty.ca/county-residents/covid-19.
