Wood Mulch and Compost Information

The Town of Perinton typically has free wood mulch and compost available in bulk for Town residents in both the spring and fall of each year. Our 2022 Spring Wood Mulch and Leaf Compost program took place in May. This program is returning for the Fall of 2022 starting September 9th until September 23rd providing wood chips only.

This give-back program is made available to Perinton residents as part of our ongoing yard waste recycling program. All of your tree, leaf and brush debris collected weekly by Perinton highway crews is ground/mulched by Waste Management for reuse. Making this material available for reuse saves landfill space and provides a valuable commodity for residents.

Please note: Wood chips and compost made available through this program are intended for Town of Perinton residents only.  Commercial contractors are asked to refrain from removing wood chips from the distribution points.  If anyone witnesses a contractor removing wood chips from one of the sites, please contact the Town of Perinton Highway Department at (585) 223-5115 with a license plate number or company name so we may contact them.
