How to request litter baskets in Rochester

When will the City provide litter baskets?

The City of Rochester provides public litter baskets at locations where litter has been a problem. 

Typically, these areas are associated with high pedestrian traffic (e.g., major bus stops, street corners, public buildings, commercial areas, etc.). 

The baskets are emptied at least once a week, depending on need. Litter baskets may not be used for disposal of residential or commercial refuse.
