On 'America Recycles Day', Dinolfo Announces New Public Recycling Signage

Monroe County Executive Cheryl Dinolfo announced the release of new recycling signage that is now available for use by local schools, businesses, non-profit institutions, municipalities, and other organizations. The new signage, which is being provided free of charge, will help local organizations enhance their internal recycling operations, preserve natural resources, and protect the environment.

“In honor of America Recycles Day, we are proud to offer this free signage to our community to help keep unnecessary waste out of our landfills,” said Dinolfo. “Recycling helps to protect our natural resources and enhances our mission to grow more jobs, build better, lower-tax budgets, and support stronger families in Monroe County. I welcome all local organizations to join us in displaying this signage to help our residents ‘recycle right.’”

One of the leading impediments to proper recycling is a lack of clear understanding on what can and cannot be recycled. The new signage developed by Monroe County is available in multiple formats, depending on the type of organization, and even provides space for organizations to add their own branding. Interested parties can visit https://www.monroecounty.gov/des-recycle-right-signs to download the signage.

The following organizations have already agreed to use the new signage at their facilities:

• Town of Penfield
• Spencerport Central Schools
• Rochester School for the Deaf
• Northside School (Fairport)
• Barton and Logudice
• SWBR

To complement the new signage, Monroe County has also developed additional resources for public and organizational use. These resources are also available on the County’s recycling webpage at https://www2.monroecounty.gov/des-residentialrecycling.php.
