The pandemic has created local heroes of many sorts. Healthcare workers, personal support workers, grocery store workers, volunteer drivers... and waste collectors and site attendants.
Its an unsung essential service that has remained in place throughout the pandemic, thanks to the efforts of the township employees and contractors (working from Brian Larmon and Percy Snider) in South Frontenac, as well as waste site attendants struggle to keep distancing measures in place, and curbside garbage pickup carries risk as well.
"Many township employees have had the option of working at home, and roads departments can implement distancing, but it is not as easy when it comes to waste management," said South Frontenac Public Works Manager Mark Segsowrth. "They deserve public support for the work they have done over the last six weeks."
