Orleans County Soil and Water

Come join us this Saturday, September 20 for the Annual Shoreline Cleanup!  Starts at 9:00 am at Bullard Park in Albion.  Lets clean up the shores along the streams and Lakes in Orleans County!  If you have questions give us a call at 585-589-5959 ext. 5.

Do you have old used tires that you would like to get rid of?  We are hosting a used tire collection on October 4, 2014.  We would like you to pre-register the number of tires you are bringing so that we know how many we will be handling that day.  To pre-register either call us at 585-589-5959 ext. 5 or send an email to judy.bennett@ny.nacdnet.net.  Please be sure to include the number of tires you plan to bring and also if they are on rims or not.  We also need to know if they are passenger tires or truck tires.  We will not be taking tractor tires at this time.  They are too big for us to handle.  There is a small fee for each tire that you bring.

 

Mission Statement:

Orleans County Soil and Water Conservation Districts mission is to use the delivery of science-based, locally-directed, technical and educational assistance to protect and enhance the health, safety and general welfare of the Orleans County residents through the conservation of soil, water, air, plant and animal resources. Soil and Water Conservation Districts were formed in all of New York’s counties in the 1940s as part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s attempt to promote on-farm conservation practices through the Soil Conservation Service (now Natural Resources Conservation Service). In more recent years, County SWCD’s have formed a strong partnership with the NYS Department of Agriculture and Markets. SWCDs are primarily funded by counties but also receive support from NYS as well as grants from the state, federal, and private programs. SWCDs perform important work benefiting Lake Ontario’s water quality.

Hours of Operation:  Monday through Friday 8 am to 4:30 pm
