Wyoming County has a contract with Waste Management for curbside collection for several towns and villages, which county officials say proves to be “quite a bit cheaper” as a “huge collective” contract vs. individually.

For 2017, the annual cost is approximately $237 for year-round residents, up slightly – $2 to $3 – from 2016. The seasonal rate is approximately $187. Additionally, residents do not have to purchase Waste Management cans or bins for recyclables.

The collection schedule is as follows:

    • Monday – Town and Village of Perry and Old Orchard Beach and Fairview roads, Silver Lake;

    • Tuesday – Town and Village of Gainesville, Village of Silver Springs, and Town and Village of Castile;

    • Wednesday – towns of Orangeville, Sheldon, and Wethersfield;

    • Thursday – Village of Wyoming, Town of Middlebury, and Town and Village of Warsaw; and

    • Friday – Genesee Falls, and the towns of Pike and Eagle.

If your collection day falls on or follows the following holidays during that week –  New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas – collection will be one day later.

Garbage should be placed within 5 feet of the road, before 6 a.m. on your pickup day. The equivalent of five bags or cans of normal residential garbage, including garden and yard waste, will be picked up weekly. Only one large item will be picked up each week.

Recyclables will be collected on the same day, possibly in separate trucks and at different times during the day. All recyclable material should be placed in a separate receptacle marked “recyclable.”

 Scott P. Carmichael   James N. Gillis
   

New York State Police, Warsaw barracks, culminated the investigation into misappropriated funds by the Castile Town Court Clerk with the arrest of Scott P. Carmichael July 28.

Carmichael, 51, of Castile, was charged with unlawful growing of cannabis, criminal possession of a controlled substance in the seventh degree, and resisting arrest, all Class A misdemeanors.

Carmichael’s girlfriend, former Town of Castile Court Clerk Katherine Ryan, was recently charged with unlawfully growing cannabis and criminal possession of a controlled substance as well as with stealing more than $35,000 from the town’s court bank account. 

On the morning of July 23, the New York State Police executed a search warrant at the North Main Street, Castile, address in an effort to locate the missing court files and other financial records of the court. During the search, troopers found more than 60 marijuana plants, drug paraphernalia and small amounts of methamphetamine in the area where Ryan and Carmichael shared space.

At the time, Carmichael fled the area and would not cooperate with investigators. However, during the investigation, it was believed that Carmichael fled to a residence in Portageville. A second search warrant was obtained, which led to the seizure of several marijuana smoking devices containing residue of the drug, along with brass knuckles.

Consequently, James N. Gillis, 26, of Portageville, was charged with unlawful possession of marijuana, a violation; and criminal possession of a weapon in the fourth degree, a Class A misdemeanor. 

Gillis is due in the Genesee Falls Town court at a later date.

Although Carmichael was not at Gillis’s residence, new information tracked Carmichael to Castile, where he was subsequently arrested.

Carmichael was taken to the Wyoming County Jail in lieu of $5,000 bail. He is due in court at a later date.
