Residential Refuse Collection is responsible for the weekly 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.
Commercial Refuse Collection provides scheduled pick-up to commercial, retail, food service, City School District, various Monroe County facilities and residential units of 4 or more. Recycling collects from both residential and commercial customers. A separate fleet and operators perform weekly collection of recyclable materials placed curbside in designated 'blue boxes'.
The Solid Waste Division is proud to provide Rochester residents and businesses with the best refuse and recycling collection service possible.
