The Town of Perinton has updated it's Residential Refuse Policy. The policy outlines our refuse collection program ‘do’s and don’ts,” helps minimize duplication of services between the town and private garbage/trash disposal companies, and mitigates the safety hazards and unsightliness associated with debris placed in the public right-of-way. This program remains free to all residential properties in Perinton. Please click here for the new policy.

The new policy does not affect Village of Fairport residents.

Additionally, we are implementing a new “quadrant” based collection schedule.  We have divided the town into four collection quadrants or areas. Residents in each area will have the same collection day, Monday through Thursday of each week. This approach is more efficient and cost-effective as it will allow the town, private disposal companies and Waste Management Recycle America, who provides town-wide recycling services, to focus our collection activities on one area of the town each day. Please click here for the map to see which quadrant your home is located in, as your collection day may have changed. You can also verify your collection day electronically using your street name. The Town, private disposal companies and WM Recycle America will all continue to collect on the same day.

Our new collection schedule will begin on April 1. Please take a moment to review the updated policy, map and your collection day. Please also remember to place all loose materials in reusable containers without lids. This helps keep our collection activities clean and safe. Our trucks each make approximately 500 stops and collect more than 20,000 pounds of material a day. As a reminder, the town’s program is intended to assist residents with common residential tree and landscaping debris, household metal products such as appliances, small amounts of dirt, stone and concrete, as well as ties (up to 4 per property annually). These items are generated by routine residential property maintenance activities. For large-scale projects involving commercial contractors that result in significant amounts or tree or landscaping debris, we ask residents to have their contractor(s) remove and dispose of the materials as part of their services. We appreciate your cooperation and thank you for working with us to “help keep Perinton clean.”

Please feel free to contact the Department of Public Works (585) 223-5115 if you have any questions regarding this information.
