Update: Today’s Recycling only (12-27) will NOT be picked up. It will be picked up next Tuesday.

This week, Waste Management is on schedule to pick up garbage and recycling on your regular pick up day. If your garbage was not picked up last Friday, you will be allowed a few extra bags outside your tote this week.

Storm update 12-26

Eden’s travel ban is lifted and moved to a travel advisory. Hamburg and Evans remain in travel bans and we ask that you do not travel there so their highway crews can continue clearing roads. The 219 and 90 remain close at this time.

Storm Update 12-25

Merry Christmas.

The storm has moved into our area as predicted. Due to the severity of the snow and damage to other areas of the county, the driving ban remains in effects. We are hoping to lift it later this evening or tomorrow morning.

Please stay home and enjoy your day.

Storm Update

Even though the weather seems calm now, we are still in a driving ban. Weather conditions are expected to change. Please stay home and off the roads. Thank you for your cooperation and helping to keep our emergency services and residents safe.

Driving Ban

We have had several calls for cars in ditches and accidents. Please stay off the roads. We are in a driving ban. No one should be on the roads except emergency personnel. Those not abiding by the ban are keeping our emergency services from getting to emergencies and putting them in danger. Again, please stay off the roads until further notice.

Storm Update

Currently we are under a blizzard warning through Sunday, December 25th at 7:00am. A driving ban for all of Erie County will begin at 9:30am. Only emergency personnel will be allowed on the roads. As of now, the garbage trucks are still picking up the routes.  Please get your totes in as soon as they come by. Power outages will be widespread and restoration may take much longer than normal because this is a regional storm. If a warming shelter is needed, we will open one. Please check our town social media pages for important updates. Anyone in need of help, please call the town hall at 716-992-3408, ext. 1. We are asking everyone to stay home and safe. Please check on your neighbors, especially our seniors who may need additional help. Please keep our emergency services in your thoughts. Thank you, stay safe and Merry Christmas.
