Wood Mulch and Compost Information

The Town of Perinton typically offers free wood mulch and compost in bulk to residents in the spring and fall of each year.

Every Friday in May, the Department of Public Works will haul wood mulch and leaf compost in bulk to the Perinton Community Center North Parking Lot for Town residents to collect and use around their homes for free.

This give-back program is made available as part of our ongoing yard waste collection and recycling program. All tree, leaf, and brush debris collected weekly by Perinton Highway crews is ground into wood mulch or recycled into leaf compost 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.
