To ensure safety and reduce waiting times, appointments are required for HHW collection; an appointment is NOT necessary for electronics recycling and/or document shredding only. HHW appointment scheduling is now under way. Pittsford and East Rochester residents can make an appointment by calling 248-6250 or going online to HHW appointments must be reserved by Friday, May 10 but please note appointments may fill up well in advance of the event so early registration is encouraged. If appointments are full, please check back as additional appointments may become available.  Please note, waste from businesses will not be accepted.
