Dinolfo Announces Series of Mobile Recycling Collections to Make Services More Accessible

Monroe County Executive Cheryl Dinolfo announced a series of mobile recycling collections that make recycling services more accessible to County residents. Dinolfo and the Monroe County Department of Environmental Services (DES) will host a free document shredding event on May 1st, as well as a series of household hazardous waste (HHW) collections over the course of the year. All of these services are available at the Ecopark, but the mobile collections make them more convenient for residents.

“Monroe County has long been an innovator when it comes to bringing government services closer to the people we serve,” said Dinolfo. “With tremendous support from community partners like Classified Scanning and Shredding and our many towns and villages, we are happy to offer a convenient schedule of mobile collections for the unique recyclables our residents want to manage properly. These collections help keep our community beautiful, enhancing our efforts to attract new investment and more jobs to Monroe County.”

Secure Document Shredding
Dinolfo has scheduled a FREE document shredding event with Classified Scanning & Shredding, a division of Lifetime Assistance, Inc. Document shredding helps protect residents from identity theft by destroying personal documents like tax returns, bank statements, and more. There is a limit of 3 boxes per person.

The event will be held from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.:
• Wednesday, 5/1 – 425 Paul Road (Chili)

“Lifetime Assistance is honored to once again partner with Monroe County and support this great initiative,” said James Branciforte, President & CEO of Lifetime Assistance. “Monroe County has been an extraordinary community partner and longstanding customer of our Classified Scanning and Shredding services.

Household Hazardous Waste Collections
Monroe County is co-hosting a series of HHW collections in partnership with local towns and villages. At these collections, residents can properly dispose of chemicals like paint, automotive fluids, fertilizers, household cleaners, pool chemicals and mercury products.

The collections will be held:
• Saturday, 4/27 – Chili Highway Department (200 Beaver Road)
• Saturday, 5/11 – Perinton Highway Department (100 Cobbs Lane)
• Saturday, 6/15 – Ogden Highway Department (2432 S. Union Street)
• Saturday, 9/14 – Webster Highway Department (1005 Picture Parkway)
• Saturday, 10/12 – Greece Highway Department (647 Long Pond Road)

These collections are especially important because, if not disposed of properly, the chemicals have the potential to contaminate local water supplies.

Do not bring: used motor oil & vehicle batteries; propane tanks, pharmaceutical waste; cans with dried paint; single-use batteries.

Due to limited space, appointments are required for HHW collections. Appointments can be booked online at www.ecoparkmcny.com or by contacting the Town directly by phone.
