Press Release, Orleans County Chief Administrative Officer Jack Welch

ALBION – Orleans County works closely with Modern Disposal Services to provide a countywide solid waste program for all of our residents who participate in our program. From time to time, we unfortunately experience some delays in providing this service as scheduled.

Today’s delays are related to the universal staffing problem all employers are having this year. Employees are changing jobs or taking unexpected time off and there is not enough capacity with the employees who do report to work to complete the scheduled assigned tasks or routes.  Therefore solid waste pickups are delayed for one day.

The routes affected today are all of the routes in the town of Clarendon. In the town of Murray we have Route 31, Hindsburg Road, Fancher Road, and Route 237 north of Holley.  All of today’s affected routes will be picked up on Saturday.

“We apologize for any inconvenience this creates for our residents along the affected routes,” said Jack Welch, county chief administrative officer.“If these residents leave out their solid waste, Modern Disposal will have your items collected as soon as Modern is able on Saturday.”
