ARC GLOW has announced Monday that they sold their waste collection business to Casella Waste Systems. Casella will continue using the same property and staff at the West Main Street waste transfer station. Arc GLOW will use the money from the acquisition to invest in programs and services to meet the needs of those they support. They said the reason for the sale was that they had been losing money on their trash collection services for years, the fleet of garbage trucks was old and would have been very expensive to replace. Casella promised to hire on anyone who wished to stay; however, the number of people being helped by employment with the trash collection and transfer station was shrinking. ARC GLOW anticipates the move out of the transfer station will take place over the next 6 months.

Governor Hochul isn’t reinstating COVID-19 restrictions this upcoming school year despite a potential rise in cases as the weather changes. She says there will be no more quarantining, test to stay, or sending an entire classroom home due to exposure. These changes align with recent suggestions from the CDC, which also does not require schools to randomly test people who don’t have symptoms. The governor says that being vaccinated against COVID-19 is the best way for residents to protect themselves against the illness.

The average gas prices have dropped for the 10th week in a row but are still well above what they were a year ago. According to Triple A this morning, the national average price is $3.89, which is down 7 cents from last week. The New York State average is higher at 4.25 but that is 9 cents less than a week ago. The average price per gallon in Orleans County is $4.38 and in Genesee, $4.34. In Batavia it is 4.34, which is 6 cents cheaper than last week. A year ago the New York State average was 3.22. The main reason for falling gas prices is a decrease in demand as the vacation season is ending.
