Electronics Recycling / Household Hazardous Waste Programs

Perinton Community Recycling Day (including Shredding, Electronics Recycling and Household Hazardous Waste Collection)

Each year, the Town of Perinton hosts a Drive-Thru Community Recycling Day featuring electronics recycling, free shredding for residents, and a household hazardous waste collection in partnership with Monroe County.  The drive-thru event will take place at Perinton’s Department of Public Works, located at 100 Cobb’s Lane, on Saturday, May 11, 2024, from 7:45 a.m. to noon.

By offering these collections, we are bringing essential services close to home while encouraging residents to recycle items that are often difficult to dispose of properly.

Electronics Recycling (no appointment required): The Town of Perinton is partnering with a local company, EWASTE+, to collect and properly recycle electronic waste. TVs, computers, printers, phones, microwaves, and other electronics will be accepted free of charge.

Shredding (no appointment required): Free shredding will also be offered to Perinton residents. Shred-Text, a certified and licensed document destruction company, will be on-site to accept up to 4-5 boxes of paper per vehicle. All documents will be shredded on location, and there is no need to remove staples/paperclips.

Household Hazardous Waste (appointment required): Appointments are required for the Household Hazardous Waste Collection portion of the event only. To book an appointment, visit www.monroecounty.gov/ecopark/ or call Perinton Public Works at (585) 223 – 5115.

Those who have made a Household Hazardous Waste Collection appointment can dispose of up to 30 gallons of liquid and 75 pounds of solid household hazardous waste. This can include latex paint cans that contain more than 1/3 of a gallon of leftover paint. Other frequently disposed-of items include oil-based wood stains and preservatives, automotive fluids (antifreeze; brake, power steering, and transmission fluids), pesticides and fertilizers, flammable products (gasoline, kerosene, thinners, strippers, solvents, glues, etc.), household cleaners (soaps, waxes, drain cleaners, etc.), driveway sealer, pool and photo chemicals, rechargeable (Ni-Cad) and button batteries, mercury (thermometers, thermostats), syringes/sharps (safely packaged in a puncture-proof container, i.e., 2-liter soda bottle).

Certain items that should NOT be brought to the event, such as used motor oil & vehicle batteries (contact service station or retailer); pharmaceutical waste, propane tanks; cans of dried paint (if dried, remove lid and place in trash); empty containers (trash or recycle); everyday alkaline batteries (trash); glazing/spackle & joint compounds (trash).

Household Hazardous Waste

Residents can recycle Household Hazardous Waste year-round by making an appointment at the Monroe County Ecopark. Check out local PaintCare drop-off sites to properly dispose of house paint as well as primers, stains, sealers, and clear coatings such as shellac and varnish.
