The information on these pages refers to policies in the Town of Perinton.

Residents of the Village of Fairport can find Village policies at

The following waste collection policies have been implemented to enable the Town to provide a more efficient service to residential properties in the community. Waste collection rules also help to eliminate a duplication of services provided by private garbage collectors and reduce the safety hazard and unsightliness produced by debris that is placed along our streets.

  • Debris placed in a container shall not exceed 60 pounds in weight, including container. 
  • Tree branches, vines, steel posts/pipe must be cut in 4 foot lengths. 
  • All materials should be placed adjacent to the road shoulder, not in the roadway. 
  • Materials shall not be placed at the roadside for collection more than 24 hours in advance of the scheduled collection day. (Bulk leaf pickup is an exception). 
  • Town crews attempt to remove all debris from property with no damage occurring to the property.  However, at times, large amounts of material placed on your driveway or lawn will cause minor damage during the collection process.  Any damage occurring is the homeowner's responsibility.

Yard Waste

Yard waste is defined as leaves, vines, apples, or other types of fruit, and any other plant materials, excluding grass clippings. All loose material must be placed in reusable waterproof containers, i.e. garbage cans - plastic or metal. Materials placed in cardboard boxes or bags (paper or plastic) will not be collected.

Tree Debris

Tree debris is defined as brush, tree limbs, firewood, and small stumps less than 12" in diameter. Small amounts of brush and tree limbs must be placed in reusable waterproof containers, i.e. garbage cans - plastic or metal. Brush or tree limbs placed in cardboard boxes or bags (plastic or paper) will not be collected. Larger amounts of tree debris should be cut to 4 foot lengths and piled parallel with the curb on your property. Piles that are too large for our daily collection crews to handle will be picked up with a loader on Friday of the same week, if possible.


Four tires per house per year will be collected.

Stone and Concrete

Small amounts of stone, concrete, and asphalt can be collected by our service. All material should be placed in reusable waterproof containers that do not exceed 60 pounds in total weight. Uncontainerized material will not be collected.

Steel Posts and Pipe

Includes steel posts, pipe, steel swing sets, and playground equipment, all cut to four-foot lengths.

Household Appliances and Other Metal Products

This includes car parts, furnaces, washers, dryers, refrigerators (with doors removed), stoves, dehumidifiers, toilets, sinks, bathtubs, air conditioners, lawnmowers, wheels, empty propane cylinders, and gas and charcoal grills.


Leaves will be collected in bulk with vacuum machines or loaders. Collection will occur on a 4-6-week cycle in the fall from Labor Day until snow arrives, and in the spring during the months of April and May. Leaves should be placed at the edge of your property, not on the pavement. DO NOT MIX sticks or other debris in the leaf piles (this will break the leaf vacuums). Leaf piles that contain sticks or other debris must be containerized to facilitate collection. Leaves placed in reusable waterproof containers will be collected year round on your regularly scheduled collection day. Leaves placed in cardboard boxes or bags (plastic or paper) will not be collected.

Christmas Trees

Christmas trees will be collected on your regularly scheduled collection day. Simply place the tree behind the curb, on your property.


Household garbage – i.e. food waste, paper goods

Furniture, kitchen cabinets, countertops, flooring, doors, small appliances, microwaves

Wood products, wood fences, dimensional lumber

Building debris – paneling, drywall, electrical, duct work, insulation, roofing shingles (check with private hauler for special handling instructions or additional charges)
