Waste Management cancels Tuesday refuse pickup

SANBORN — Waste Management has canceled Tuesday refuse pickup in Hartland and the Town of Lockport, company spokesperson Lori Caso announced late Monday.

Refuse and recycling collection will be held Saturday in both towns instead.

The company ordered the closing of its Buffalo Hauling, Chaffee Landfill and Depew Transfer Station on Tuesday due to forecasted extreme weather.

Residential customers in Erie, Niagara and Wyoming counties who normally have Tuesday trash pickup will be serviced Saturday. Commercial customers of Waste Management will be serviced Wednesday.

"We apologize for any inconvenience to our customers, but due to the extreme temperatures and our concern for public safety and our WM employees, we are closing operations tomorrow," Caso said.

Tuesday was to be Waste Management's first day collecting refuse and recycling in Hartland.
