County should have more household hazardous waste collections

How sad is it that we have to go to Monroe County and pay a fee to dispose of hazardous waste?

I’m cleaning out a garage that has chemicals from two homeowners ago, including lots of paint, stripper and other things you would find in a household garage. I call my local Orleans County office only to find out that they do this only once a year and that I have to go to Monroe County and pay a fee?

It was suggested to hang on to these until they have the pick up next August. Really? Are we really such a diminutive little town that we can only provide services once a year? What does our taxes pay for if not for services for the taxpayers?
