Flood debris bins in place

While the flood warning remains in effect for Lake Ontario and the Bay of Quinte, the municipality has placed flood debris bins in several locations in the County to assist with clean-up efforts.

The bins are intended for flood debris only. Property owners should only drop off items that have washed up on their shoreline, such as driftwood, brush, broken docks, rafts, rope, seaweed and lake plants.

The bins are located at:
Consecon Fire Station (14 County Road 29)
End of Hiscock Shores Road
Rossmore – Ridley Street near boat ramp and park
End of Sunrise Drive
Prinyers Cove Park
Northport – Northport Centennial Park

As water levels recede, the municipality will place additional waste bins to accommodate residents dropping off used sandbags.

Boat launch update
The boat launch at Prinyer’s Cove (off County Road 7 at Prinyer’s Cove) is temporarily closed due to the high water levels.

The Rossmore boat launch (Ridley Street North near the Norris Whitney Bridge) has re-opened.

The municipality continues to offer sand and sandbags at no cost to residents whose primary residence is at risk of flooding. Sandbags are not intended to protect shorelines or accessory buildings.

The sandbags are self-serve, and residents must bring their own shovels to fill bags. Residents must fill out the number of sandbags they have picked up and the civic address where they will be used.
