 Supervisor Tony LaFountain:

“Once again, the arrival of October brings Fall Drop-off to Penfield residents. Many families have done major clear-outs this past year so there’s a lot of demand for disposal of large items, brush, and secure document destruction. Many have donations set aside for the on-site St Pauly shed and Boy Scout bottle return bin. Document destruction is available Saturday only and will be done on site. As a reminder to those who cannot come to this event, Eco-Park—now celebrating 10 years of operation—is open to county residents year-round.”

Monroe County’s year-round Ecopark facility is located at 10 Avion Drive near the airport. Ecopark is a joint effort between Monroe County and Waste Management that provides county residents with a “one-stop drop-off” to dispose of or recycle many items including hard Styrofoam packing material (not foam trays used for meat or produce), TVs/electronics (fee-based), cooking oil/grease, fluorescent lights, clothing, sharps and syringes, and more. Ecopark also offers many special collection days for household hazardous waste and pharmaceutical and medication disposal.

To dispose of televisions and electronics contact retailers that sell those products. Do not leave on curb, New York State law prohibits trash haulers from collecting electronic waste.
