Summer Waste and Recycling Facts and Tips:

Date Posted: July 25, 2018

 

  • Did you go camping this summer? Don’t forget – empty camping fuel cylinders are hazardous waste. Please bring them to a hazardous waste depot during operating hours for proper disposal. Do not place them in your garbage or your Blue Box.
  • Did you know that all alcohol containers over 100 ml have a deposit on them? Even boxed wine! Return all beer, wine and spirit containers to the Beer Store to get your deposit back, or ask at your local transfer station about donation options.
  • Aluminum can be recycled repeatedly. In fact, a pop can may become a bicycle in just 60 days! Recycling aluminum uses a fraction of the energy it takes to refine ore from raw materials. Place your aluminum cans in the blue box!
  • Plastic disposable cutlery and drinking straws are not recyclable, please place these in the garbage or consider a substitute like eco-friendly bamboo cutlery or paper straws.

Peterborough Public Health Extended Heat Warning

Date Posted: July 13, 2018

Today Peterborough Public Health issued the second Heat Warning of the season.

Extended Heat Warning 3 plus days.

A heat event is expected to start Saturday, July 14 and continue until Tuesday, July 17. A cold front will move across the region Tuesday bringing some relief.

Daytime temperatures will be in the low thirties, however there is some uncertainty whether overnight low temperatures Saturday night will fall below 20 degrees in rural areas. Overnight low temperatures Sunday night and Monday night are expected to be near 20 degrees. It should be noted that this heat episode is not expected to be as long or as intense as the one at the start of July.

Peterborough Public Health continues beach water testing throughout the City and County of Peterborough and at Curve Lake and Hiawatha First Nations. Results are regularly updated at www.peterboroughpublichealth.ca.

People suffer heat-related illnesses when their body temperature quickly rises and they are unable to cool themselves. The risk of heat-related illness increases with the amount of time spent in the heat, the temperature and an individual’s sensitivity to heat. If you feel faint, find it hard to breathe, or feel confused and disoriented because of the heat, call your doctor. In an emergency, call 911. Please remember to call or visit family, friends and neighbours, especially seniors who live on their own, to make sure they are alright.

Drink plenty of water, even if you don’t feel thirsty. This decreases your risk of dehydration. Thirst is not a good indicator of dehydration.

Peterborough Public Health issues warnings for high heat or humidity that is expected to last two or more days. Peterborough Public Health follows a provincial Harmonized Heat Warning and Information System for dealing with heat events affecting Curve Lake and Hiawatha First Nations, and the City and County of Peterborough. Peterborough Public Health staff will monitor this system to determine when the Medical Officer of Health should declare a heat warning or extended heat warning. This coordinated provincial system provides a consistent approach for processing and issuing heat warnings in Ontario. It also provides evidence-based heat warning triggers which are founded on the association between temperature, humidex and mortality.

Extreme heat events are a potentially significant health risk and can have a severe impact on the health of vulnerable populations including infants, the elderly, shut-ins, persons with chronic diseases, the morbidly obese and the marginally housed. Heat-related illnesses such as dehydration, heat cramps, heat exhaustion, and heat stroke are preventable. Extreme heat is often accompanied by poor air quality. Peterborough Public Health encourages you to monitor the Air Quality Health Index found as a link on the Ministry of the Environment & Climate Change’s website www.airqualityontario.com and plan outdoor activities accordingly.
