Inclement Weather Information
County Waste and Recycling would like to say how grateful we are to serve you. Our #1 core value is safety. We strive to assure complete safety of our employees, customers and the public in all our operations.
To meet these expectations, our drivers and managers are trained on multiple safety techniques and do have to occasionally make the hard decision to be unable to service areas due to inclement weather (which includes snow, ice, freezing rain, rain, mud, high winds, hail or extreme cold).

Have you ever wondered why you find those tiny little packets labeled “Throw Away” and “Do Not Eat” when you purchase items such as a purse, shoes, or even food? While they may seem annoying or wasteful when you find them in a shoe box or at the bottom of your purse, these little packets actually serve an important purpose and can also be repurposed. These little packets contain a substance known as silica gel and they are very effective at reducing moisture and humidity within a small space.
