If the giant landfills in Ontario and Seneca County want to stay in business why not tell them that part of the deal is that they have to pick up the trash locally?

Look, you all can take jabs at one another some other place, but TUESDAY is coming - a day we normally put out our totes for Feher and we have no idea what to do. Just asking for help. I have my OPINIONS as to why Feher had to go out of business (MANY told us they dumped Feher because their prices went up....well, their prices went UP because they were forced to use Ontario Landfill, which charged them a lot more - a cost they had to pass along to customers). The City (who enforced this regulation to Feher) offers us a bunch of names of other trash carriers...but I have heard from a very reliable source that neither Casella nor Lyons is accepting new customers. I know where I would LIKE to go dump my trash...but seriously I'm asking for help....

The city of Geneva has temporarily made allowances for a fifth company to handle trash pickup. I do not however, remember which company.

Casella has a big front page ad in today's Finger Lakes Times looking for new customers.

We signed up with Casella but they use a 96 gallon Toter for recycling, and a second one for trash. Not sure where I'm going to fit the recycling Toter, we sure can't fill it in 2 weeks.

believe that lyons road may take it if you bring it out to their location and pay to put it in their dumpsters

may be a temporary solution

or ask your neighbors - who have service - if you can put it on their container for a short time - pay them for each bag

does the city have the transfer station and do they allow people to pay per bag to dispose of it there?
