Malahide Township uses an automated calling service to advise and update residents on flooding and water/sewer service emergencies. This system will inform municipal water service customers of potential emergencies such as boil water advisories and water main breaks, and planned water-main shutdowns. This system will also keep Port Bruce and Springfield residents informed of any potential or imminent flooding, and will convey any flood warnings/watches issued by the Catfish Creek Conservation Authority.
The Township of Malahide has initiated a composting promotion to assist residents in reducing their household waste. Composters are currently sold at the Township Office at a cost of $35.00 (including HST), and Kitchen Food Waste Containers are also now available at a cost of $3.50 (including HST).
An Electronic Waste (e-waste) Bin has been installed at the Malahide Community Place, 12105 Whittaker Road, Springfield, in partnership with the Elgin County Library Branches and the STEAM Centre in St.
The Leaf and Yard Waste Collection Program is only for residents of Springfield and Port Bruce. This Fall the collection is scheduled for October 30 to November 24, 2017. There is no limit to the amount of leaf and yard waste that can be set out. The program is NOT for waste items from farm or commercial or industrial operations. The material MUST be set out in paper bags which weigh less than 22 kilograms (44 pounds) or bundled in lengths not greater than 1.2 m (4 ft). Acceptable material includes: leaves, sticks & twigs, garden plants, yard and garden trimmings.
The Elgin Clean Water Program is a rural water quality initiative that provides technical assistance and financial incentives to help landowners embark on stewardship projects. The program was created by four Elgin County Conservation Authorities (Catfish Creek, Kettle Creek, Long Point Region, and Lower Thames Valley).
