The Town of Penfield will host a one-day recycling event for Penfield residents on Saturday, October 14, 7:00 AM to 3:30 PM at its Public Works Complex, 1607 Jackson Road. Services for the day are secure document destruction, metals and appliance recycling, brush disposal, and clothing and linens donations. There will be NO ELECTRONICS recycling at this event.
“This is the fifth year we have hosted this fall event to help residents dispose of unwanted recyclables and reduce the amount of waste being sent to the landfills,” said Supervisor Tony LaFountain. “Throughout the year residents have many outlets to donate or recycle unwanted household items. Ecopark is an excellent county resource.”
Recycling Day is for Penfield residents only. Proof of residency will be checked at the gate. Please direct questions to the Department Public Works, 340-8710, Monday–Friday 7:00 AM to 3:30 PM.
To dispose of items NOT collected at this event consider:
Monroe County’s year-round Ecopark facility is located at 10 Avion Drive near the airport. Ecopark is a joint effort between Monroe County and Waste Management that provides county residents with a “one-stop drop-off” to dispose of or recycle many items including hard Styrofoam packing material (not foam trays used for meat or produce), cooking oil/grease, fluorescent lights, clothing, sharps and syringes, and more. Ecopark offers regular collections for NO FEE. Ecopark also offers many special collection days for household hazardous waste and pharmaceutical and medication disposal. For hours and more information go to www.monroecounty.gov/ecopark.
To dispose of televisions and electronics contact retailers that sell those products. Do not leave on curb, New York State law prohibits trash haulers from collecting electronic waste.
To dispose of unwanted bicycles, please bring them to the Town of Penfield and Penfield Rotary bicycle collection event for R Community Bikes on October 7, 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM (one week BEFORE recycling day) at the Community Center, 1985 Baird Road.
