The Town of Perinton will have free wood chips and compost available in bulk for Town residents in both the spring and fall. The Fall 2018 wood chips and compost are available from Sept. 14 through Oct. 5, while supplies last, at the following locations:


  • Perinton Park off O’Connor Road (lower parking lot)
  • Route 31 Park & Ride on Courtney Drive. (This replaces the Egypt Park location used in past years)
  • The Park & Ride lot on Route 96 in Bushnell’s Basin


Both materials are made available as part of Perinton’s ongoing yard waste recycling program.  All tree/brush debris collected weekly and all leaves collected each fall by Perinton Department of Public Works crews is ground/mulched for residents’ use.

The materials made available through this program are intended for Town of Perinton residents’ use.  Commercial contractors are asked to refrain from removing woodchips from the distribution points.  If anyone witnesses a contractor removing wood chips from one of the sites, please contact the Town of Perinton Department of Public Works at (585) 223-5115 with a license plate number or company name so we may contact them.
