Storm Update

Updated: June 22, 2022 - 12:00 noon 

The state of emergency caused by the May 21, 2022 storm has been lifted.  

Township operations have returned to near normal, though many public works projects will be delayed due to staff time being redirected to deal with the fall out from the storm. 

Well water testing bottles are available at the Township Municipal Office in Warsaw. The Peterborough Health Unit recommends that well water be tested multiple times a year. It is especially important to test your well water after a period of disuse, such as a prolonged electrical outage or when returning to a seasonal residence. 

Burn Permits are required for all fires (including campfires) and are available through the Burn Permit website. More information regarding fires and burning in the Township can be found on the Burn Permits webpage. Call 705-652-8392 x 212 if you require assistance obtaining a burn permit. 

Spoiled food due to the storm is no longer being accepted free of charge at the Halls Glen Transfer Station at 1951 County Road 6. If you have food waste to dispose of it will need to be separated:

  • Unpackaged food waste goes into the Molok bins, and 
  • Food packaging goes into the garbage or recycling bins.

Please note that the Transfer Station only accepts cash and debit. 

Brush and small tree limbs can be taken to the Transfer Station at no charge. There are also green waste bins at the Warsaw Public Works Depot 1422 County Road 4 or Peterborough County's Douro Depot 713 County Road 4

Construction and demolition waste is not accepted at the Transfer Station but can be taken to the Peterborough Waste Management Facility or Waste Connections Canada Facility located at 348 County Road 6, Monday to Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
