Safe Waste Disposal Practices

Posted on Wednesday March 25, 2020

There are a number of safe waste disposal guidelines for residents that will keep our waste collection staff safe during these difficult times. 

  • Do NOT place used tissues and napkins in the Green Bin – these items often become wind-blown when the collector opens the lid or when emptying the bin into the truck.

  • Place used tissues and napkins in the garbage. Wash your hands afterwards.

  • Use liners for food waste placed in the Green Bin.

  • Bag all waste. Do not place waste loosely in garbage containers

  • If you’re sick: place ANY item that has come into contact with your mouth, nose or eyes into the garbage – even items that you normally place into your Blue or Grey box (eg. water/beverage bottles, pop cans, milk/juice cartons, etc.).

CLEAN RECYCLING

Residents are reminded that only clean, recyclable materials are accepted in the blue box program. If any of the following items are in your blue box, it will NOT be collected:

  • Kleenex
  • Tissues
  • Sanitary wipes (i.e. baby wipes, alcohol wipes)
  • Medical waste of any kind (sharps, gloves, face mask, medication)
  • Food waste

While these items are never accepted in the blue box program, there will be no exceptions made. Please use due diligence when placing items in your waste bin, green bin or recycling blue box.

SELF-ISOLATION

In response to the recent COVID-19 Virus, some residents may be self-isolating for 14 days due to recent travel or potentially being exposed to COVID-19. During this 14-day isolation period, to ensure the health and safety of our collections and sort line staff, Quinte Waste Solutions is asking that residents either store recyclables until the isolation period has ended (preferred) or carefully place all material into garbage bags and utilize their regular garbage collection day for disposal.
