Orleans County Says Solid Waste Collection Delayed By One Day Next Week

Orleans County Chief Administrative Officer Jack Welch today said that Modern Disposal, which provides a countywide solid waste program for all of our residents who participate, will delay collections by one day next week due to the solar eclipse on Monday, April 8th.

Collection of solid waste and recycling for the week will begin on Tuesday, April 9th and conclude on Saturday, April 13th. The delay in collection ensures that Modern’s crews do not add to what may prove to heavy traffic volume throughout the region and prevents any unexpected delays in service.

“We apologize for any inconvenience this creates but we think it’s better to schedule service for a one-day delay now rather than wait and see what happens on Monday,” said Welch.  “The fact is we all need to use an abundance of caution as people gather to watch the total eclipse in our county. Delaying collection for one day is simply a safety precaution for both Modern personnel and our residents.”
