Refuse and Recycling


The City of Rochester offers weekly refuse collection and every-other week-recycling pickup for residents.

Wheeled refuse and recycling containers are provided to ease collection for both residents and collectors. Refuse and recycling must be placed between the sidewalk and curb by 6:30 a.m. on the designated refuse and recycling collection day. Remember: Refuse collection is every week, recycling every-other week. Your collection day stays the same. 

Rochester's recycling program has garnered national acclaim. By requiring households to recycle, Rochester reinforces its commitment to green practices while reducing demand on natural resources.
