Monroe County Executive Maggie Brooks and Rochester Mayor Robert Duffy announced that the County and the City will be partnering with Metro Waste Paper U.S., Inc. and its subcontractor Sunnking, Inc. to host a free computer recycling collection for County residents.

Appointment times must be made by calling 753-7600 (Option #3). After making an appointment, residents will be sent a confirmation with instructions on how to pack the material and directions to the facility.
