Cutting Down on Single-Use Plastics

Join the Green Task Force in reducing our use of single-use plastics! The City of Belleville is now the proud owner of a Quench Buggy – a mobile water station with taps for refilling your reusable water bottles for FREE. Forgot your bottle? No problem! The Green Task Force will be tagging along with the Quench Buggy to sell stainless steel water bottles to the public for $5 each. Find us this summer at West Zwick's Park for Canada Day and Waterfront.
