The Town of Essex will free sandbags to help residents protect their properties again this year.

Residents are asked to call 519-776-7336 ext 1124 (during regular business hours) to request bags for their properties. Empty bags will be delivered to their property by Town of Essex staff. Residents are eligible to receive up to 100 sandbags per property, provided on a first-come, first-served basis. Residents who used the program in 2019 are asked to consider waiting to access new sandbags to ensure supply is available for those who need it most.

Sand is available at the Colchester Schoolhouse and residents are required to bring their own shovels and fill their own bags.

All residents attending the Colchester Schoolhouse must adhere to physical distancing requirements and limitations on group sizes.
