New E-Waste Policy Effective August 1, 2015

Beginning August 1, 2015, older style televisions and computer monitors containing cathode ray tubes (CRT's) will no longer be accepted for drop off at the Town/Village of East Rochester Department of Public Works garage located at 200 Ontario Street. To dispose of these items, you must bring them to an approved facility for drop off and there will be a charge for each CRT item. The DPW will no longer accept these items at their site.

If you place a CRT item at the curb it will be tagged with a violation sticker. If the item is still at the curb after one (1) day the DPW will then remove the CRT item and you will be charge a fee of $50.00 for each CRT item remaining.

All other forms of electronic waste other than CRT's may still be dropped off at the DPW Garage free of charge. Prior to dropping off allowable E-Waste, residents/commercial property owners must first check in at the DPW Office. Anyone dropping off unacceptable CRT items will be subject to fines based on the video surveillance cameras located on the property.

Deconversion Incentive

The Village of East Rochester has in effect a law which provides an incentive to owners of multi-family dwellings for converting those structures to single-family usage.

There are several multi-family dwellings in the Village, generally rental property, which were originally built as single-family homes. The goal of the Village Board is to incent as many property owners as possible to return these homes to their original single-family use. The results should have positive benefits to our greater community. Restoring those homes to single-family use results in a more valuable piece of property. Single-family homes in the Village continue to appreciate in value, in most cases, at a higher rate than multi-family properties.

Please see our Deconversion Incentive page for more information and documentaion.
