E-Waste Policy: Effective January 1, 2017
As part of this law, landfills will no longer be allowed to accept any electronic waste collected by the Town/Village of East Rochester at their disposal sites. Examples of Electronic Waste (E-Waste) are: Computers (towers, laptops, PDA’s, Tablets), Monitors (CRT, LCD, LED), Printers, Scanners, Copiers, Fax machines, non CRT Televisions, VCR’s, CD/DVD players, Stereo equipment, Cell phones, Telephones and lamps.
All forms of E-Waste placed at the curb for collection for either regular pick or during bulk pick up, will incur a fee of $25.00 per item if collected by the Department of Public Works (DPW). E-Waste items that have CRT’s will be incurring a $50.00 dollar fee per item.
To avoid the fee for curbside collection, any residents wishing to dispose of any electronic waste, may instead bring their items to the Department of Public Works Garage at 200 Ontario Street, Monday through Thursday, 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Although residents will be asked to sign in for this process, there is no fee for this drop off service and it is available to all residents regardless of whether they have refuse service provided by the Town/Village of East Rochester. Anyone dropping off unacceptable items will be subject to fines based on the video surveillance cameras located on the property.
