The County of Prince Edward is reminding residents that broken glass and other sharp objects pose a safety risk to curbside collection workers if not disposed of correctly.
- Place any broken glass or sharp materials (with the exception of needles) in a cardboard box, tape it closed, and label it with the contents. Never place broken glass or other sharp objects in a garbage bag or recycling bin.
- Place the box beside your garbage can/bag and the material will be collected.
- Boxes containing broken glass or sharp objects do not count toward your bag limits and do not require a garbage bag tag.
- Needles and other sharps used for medical purposes should never be placed at the curbside for collection. More information and a searchable list of locations where you can drop off these materials can be found at https://healthsteward.ca/returning-medical-sharps/.
- If you are visiting a landfill or transfer site, broken glass must be disposed of in the garbage. Please do not place broken glass in a recycling receptacle.
- For more information, contact the County of Prince Edward at 613.476.2148 extension 1023, 613.962.9108 extension 1023, or email@example.com.
