Refuse Collection Information
The collection of refuse, recycling, and yard waste is not a service provided by the Town of Henrietta. Property owners are required to hire an independent refuse collector licensed to operate in the Town of Henrietta. The list of licensed refuse collectors is updated annually. For assistance/guidance with regard to debris that cannot be disposed of through your refuse company, please contact the Department of Public Works at (585) 359-7005.

Residential Refuse Collection Schedule
In response to a reoccurring request from residents, in the early part of 2017 all licensed residential refuse collectors were invited to meet with us here at Town Hall to help strategize ways to lessen refuse traffic in our residential neighborhoods without causing a hardship to the collectors. All licensed residential collectors were invited, but only three collectors attended. However, the three that attended were the collectors with the largest amount of customers in Henrietta. In order to minimize changes to the majority of Henrietta residents who have grown accustomed to their pickup day, a suggestion was made for the three refuse collectors with the majority of customers to maintain their existing schedule – which would result in, at maximum, 3 pickup days in each residential neighborhood – and for the remaining collectors to modify their schedules to match. The three residential refuse collectors with the largest amount of customers were sent a Henrietta street listing for them to indicate which days they were on each street. In order to create a visual representation of the data, the resulting list was then used to generate a color coded map. A public hearing was held on July 19, 2017 regarding the proposed local law to establish residential solid waste and recycling collection areas and to designate the days of the week for collection to occur in those areas and the Town Board adopted Local Law No. 5 of 2017 at the August 16, 2017 Town Board Meeting.

Refuse receptacles should be placed in front of your property after 4:00 p.m. on the day preceding your normal refuse collection day. After collection, all empty refuse containers must be removed as soon as possible, but not later than midnight of the collection day.
Per Town Code §234-11, refuse collectors are not allowed to collect earlier than 6:00 a.m. or later than 6:00 p.m.
Yard Waste Information
Although the Town of Henrietta does NOT pickup yard waste, as a Henrietta resident, your refuse collector is required to. Each of the residential refuse collectors licensed to operate in the Town of Henrietta have their own parameters for yard waste pickup. Please make yourself familiar with the policy of your refuse collector, because if it is not contained properly, it will not be collected.
|Quantity of yard waste collected per week||Comments|
|Al’s Maintenance||8-10 bags per week||Leaves and grass clippings need to be placed in biodegradable bags; brush, branches and sticks need to be bundled in 5’ lengths. The quantity of bundles should be placed in a pile that does not exceed 5’ x 5’ x 3’.|
|Coakley Disposal||6 bags/bundles per week||Leaves and grass clippings need to be placed in biodegradable bags not weighing over 35 pounds; brush, branches and sticks need to be bundled in 4’ lengths. Please call ahead of time to give advance notice.|

Leaf and Brush Drop Off
During the spring and fall, the Town of Henrietta offers a leaf and brush drop off event for Henrietta residents during a number of weekends at Martin Road Park South. For dates and times, as well as any other questions about the event, please call the Department of Public Works at (585) 359-7005.
Recycling InformationIs this item recyclable? Sometimes it can be hard to remember, especially if it’s an item without a recycle symbol clearly marked. As a refresher, please visit the Monroe County ecoPark’s Curbside Recycling webpage.
On the topic of recycling, you may have noticed that on windy days, due to open recycling containers, materials designated for recycling can become airborne and litter our neighborhoods. In order to help us keep Henrietta beautiful, please remember to flatten items where possible and to stack them in a way that will minimize debris. On particularly windy days, in order to prevent you and your neighbors from having to chase materials down the street, it is advisable to either delay recycling or to take your recyclable material to Monroe County ecopark at 10 Avion Drive, Rochester, NY 14624.
But what about items that don’t fit into your recycling bins to begin with? As you already know, online shopping has become really popular and as a result, many of us have lots of cardboard to recycle which often doesn’t fit into our designated recycling bins. What’s the best way to gather all of this flattened cardboard to ensure that it will not only get picked up with the rest of our recycling but that it will also get recycled? Although each residential refuse collector is required to pick up recycling, they all handle the recycling differently. For your convenience, we have gathered the following information. However, for any specific questions, please contact your refuse collector directly.
|Recycling Container||What to do with cardboard that does not fit into the container||Where does the recycling go?|
|Al’s Maintenance||Toter with lid||Flatten cardboard into bundles – maximum size 5’ x 5’ x 3’||J.C. Fibers in Rochester|
|Coakley Disposal||16 gallon bins / toter with lid available upon request||Flatten any size cardboard and place under the recycling bin||Centerpoint Transfer Station in Scottsville and/or Monroe County Recycling|
|Feher Rubbish Removal||16 gallon bins||Flatten cardboard into bundles – maximum size 3’ x 3’||FCR Recycling in Ontario County and/or J.C. Fibers|
|LT Disposal||16 gallon bins / toter with lid available upon request||Flatten any size cardboard||Casella Zero Sort Processing in Ontario County|
|Seyrek Sealers & Maintenance||16 gallon bins||Leave cardboard next to the recycling bins||Monroe County Recycling Center|
|Waste Management||16 gallon bins||Flatten cardboard into bundles – maximum size 4’ x 4’ and place near your recycling bin||Monroe County Recycling Center|
|Youngblood||16 gallon bins / toter with lid available upon request||Flatten cardboard into bundles – maximum size 4’ x 2’||J.C. Fibers in Rochester|
