It's that time of year again ... time for our yearly leaf pickup reminders: It is against Town Code to place leaves in the street. Leaves put in bags or yard waste containers will be picked up on a weekly basis by Modern Disposal until November 30. Do NOT mix tree branches or shrubs in with leaves, they will not be picked up. Residents should put the leaves out as soon as possible, it takes Highway crews about 2 to 3 weeks to complete leaf collection in the entire Town. The Highway Department will continue to pickup leaves until they are all gone or snow prevents leaf pickup.
Join us for one of our special lunches this month-Veteran's Day and Thanksgiving!

The Treatment Plant staff and management are aware of the odor complaints coming in from the subdivisions west and south of the facility. In most instances (65%), the prevailing wind pattern is from southwest to northeast pushing any odors that emanate from the treatment plant away from your homes. However, during certain meteorological events (winds out of the north or east, low heavy overcast conditions with moisture laden air and calm winds) your subdivision may experience odors. In most cases, odor is generated when the facility dewaters the sludge prior to offsite disposal. That operation begins on Sunday, second shift and goes to first shift Friday, every week. Sludge boxes are filled onsite and staged in a newly constructed storage building prior to being trucked for disposal. In addition, odor can be generated by a sustained dry period, followed by wet weather conditions which wash settled septic sludge to the plant through the interceptor system. The facility has installed and maintains several systems to treat odors from the odor generating sources. Additionally, the facility is looking to improve its odor control systems and will be starting a study within a month or so to determine the effectiveness of the systems. Also, we will be reviewing the sanitary sewer system in your neighborhood to make sure that the odors are not emanating from the manholes within the subdivision.
Every 1st and 3rd Tuesday of the month the Buffalo Urban League will be available at Amherst Town Hall for free financial/housing counseling. Please call 250-2400 to make an appointment.
