Dinolfo Announces East Side Household Hazardous Waste And Electronics Collection

Monroe County Executive Cheryl Dinolfo announced that the County’s Department of Environmental Services (DES) is hosting a dual Electronics and Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) collection in conjunction with the Towns of Perinton and Pittsford as well as the Villages of Pittsford, East Rochester and Fairport. The collection is taking place at the Town of Perinton Highway Garage located at 100 Cobbs Lane on Saturday, May 13th, from 7:45 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

“Local governments within Monroe County have a long history of collaborating to benefit residents,” said Dinolfo.  “Now that the spring cleaning season is underway, this collection provides a perfect opportunity for residents to clean out their garages and dispose of old chemicals and electronics properly.”

To ensure safety and reduce waiting times, appointments are required for all HHW collections. Appointments will be taken until Friday, May 12th. To schedule an appointment, Perinton and Fairport residents should call 223-5115, and Pittsford and East Rochester residents should call 248-6250.  Appointments can also be made online at www.ecoparkmcny.com.
