Public Information Centre: Organics Management Facility

March 21 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

The County of Prince Edward will host three public information centres (PICs) to share the initial list of municipal properties being considered for an organics management facility.

The meeting schedule is:

  • Tuesday, March 19, 5:30-7:30 pm, North Marysburgh Town Hall (2699 County Road 8, Waupoos)
  • Thursday, March 21, 5:30-7:30 pm, Sophiasburgh Town Hall (2771 County Road 5, Demorestville)
  • Wednesday, March 27, 5:30-7:30 pm, Prince Edward Community Centre (375 Picton Main Street)

Attendees at the PICs will have the chance to provide comments on the properties and the criteria used to evaluate them. Those comments will be a fundamental part of the evaluation process.

In 2022, Council directed staff to prepare a study for a municipal organics management facility. The municipality is exploring this option in order to decrease reliance on external management sites and reduce the fixed costs associated with disposing of organics. These costs will increase in coming years due to growth and inflation.

The study will evaluate options for managing organic waste on a County-operated site. The study will evaluate several properties currently owned by the municipality as potential sites for operating a compost facility. The study will look at the requirements for developing a composting facility, potential impacts to people and the environment, possible technology choices, and cost and make recommendations for a path forward.

Following the PICs, staff and the consultant for this study will complete the evaluation, considering the feedback received at the PICs. Another PIC will be held in August to present the results of the review before the study outcomes are presented to Council in September 2024.

If you have questions regarding this study, contact Albert Paschkowiak, Environmental Services and Sustainability Supervisor, at 613.476.2148 extension 4004 or email apaschkowiak@pecounty.on.ca.
