Please leave your old garbage and recycling containers empty curbside after your normal collection this week (5/1-5/5) so that they can be collected and removed. Residents should then begin using the new containers going forward. We regret any inconvenience or confusion this change in plan may cause any town residents. Please contact County Waste at 518-877-7007 for additional details or questions.
