Residential Refuse, Yard Debris, Recycling Program

Residential Refuse, Yard Debris, Recycling Program

We are pleased to provide you with the Town of Perinton’s updated Residential Refuse Policy and Recycling Program.  The following policy outlines our refuse program “do’s” and “don’ts”, helps minimize duplication of services between the Town, garbage disposal companies, and WM Recycle America, (who provides town-wide residential recycling services), and mitigates the safety hazards and unsightliness associated with debris placed in the public right-of-way.  Please refer to the following information when placing items out for collection and thank you for working with us to “help keep Perinton clean”.

General Collection Policies

  1. ALL LOOSE DEBRIS must be placed in a container and shall not exceed 50 pounds in weight, including the container.
  2. Tree branches, vines, steel posts/pipe must be cut in 4-foot lengths.
  3. Materials shall not be placed at the roadside for collection more than 24-hours in advance of the scheduled collection day. (Bulk leaf pick-up is an exception). 
  4. All materials should be placed adjacent to the road shoulder, not in the roadway.
  5. Town crews attempt to remove all debris without causing damage; however, at times, large amounts of material placed on driveways or lawn areas will cause minor damage during the collection process. Any damage that occurs is the homeowner’s responsibility.
  6. Grass clippings are not collected by the Town of Perinton.

Larger amounts of tree debris should be cut to 4 foot lengths and piled parallel with the curb on your property.
