Leaf Disposal Information

The Town of Penfield does not provide leaf pick-up due to the cost of the service for equipment, labor and landfilling. Residents are encouraged to mulch and/or compost leaves when possible. If you have a quantity of leaves that prohibits mulching there are many landscapers in and around the Penfield area that provide pick-up service at a cost that is much lower than what the Town could achieve. 

To identify landscape contractors that provide leaf pick-up services in Penfield use your favorite Internet search engine or business phone directory. The Town of Penfield does not endorse any particular individual or contractor and encourages residents to check references, shop for the best price, and understand the services to be rendered for the cost of the service. 

IMPORTANT: Contractors offer a range of services from leaf raking and removal to curbside leaf pick-up. Please do not place leaves in gutters or catch basins so water may flow freely into stormwater drains. Blocked storm drains may cause localized neighborhood flooding.

Christmas Tree Recycling

Trees can also be included in the brush drop-off.
