Solid Waste Division

Toters at curb 2 About Us

The Solid Waste Division is proud to provide Rochester residents and businesses with the best refuse and recycling collection service possible.



Residential Refuse Collection is responsible for weekly curb-side pick-up of refuse from housing of 3 or less units. State-of-the-art single operator compactor trucks are utilized to empty toters provided to residents.


A separate fleet and operators perform weekly collection of recyclable materials placed curbside in designated 'blue boxes'.

Recycling is the law in Monroe County and we make it easy - here's how 


Commercial Refuse Collection provides scheduled pick-up to commercial, retail, food service, industrial parks, City School District, various Monroe County facilities and residential units of 4 or more.
