WHITESBORO – Residents in the village of Whitesboro will see a change in their garbage pickup for next week.

Village officials say that due to Hurricane Florence, the manufacturer of the village’s yellow garbage bags, which is based in South Carolina, hasn’t been able to ship to the stores.

Stores such as Fastrac and Byrne Dairy that typically carry the yellow bags still have some, but in the event that they run out and residents are unable to get a yellow bag, they will be able to put their garbage out in regular white trash bags next week.

Whitesboro Deputy Mayor Vincent Malagese says he’s also concerned that Hurricane Florence could have an even bigger impact on the local area.

“I was keeping a close eye on it and I’m also worried about – because of how big it is and the track – I’m worried about our area with the rain,” Malagese said. “So I’m keeping a close eye on it.”

Village officials say they hope to have more bags from the manufacturer within a week, and they expect to return to the village bags the week of Sept. 25.
