Transfer Station and Recycling
HOURS OF OPERATION:
WEDNESDAY 3:00 PM TO 6:00 PM
SATURDAY 8:00 AM TO 3:00 PM
Operations at Pittsford’s Transfer Station, where garbage can be taken and recyclables disposed of, are run by a collection of part-time staff. Running the new hours of operation from Wednesdays 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm and Saturdays from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm are Wayne Giard and Robert “Bobby” Fallon.
The Town is pleased to report that the Transfer Station is now accepting used batteries and cell phones for recycling (in a separate, dedicated container). Just bring your item(s) to the attention of the attendants and they will help you drop them in the cardboard box in the proper way. It is quick and easy and earth-friendly!!!
Virtual Compost Workshop
Concerned about composting and not sure what to do about it? As of July 1, 2020 Vermonters are required to divert their food scraps from the trash. So our team is advocating across the county to discuss the ins and outs of backyard composting as well as other options residents have. The work is designed to inform folks on new ways of thinking about our ‘wasted’ food. Whether you are composting for the first time or an experienced gardener, you’ll be sure to walk away with a few new tips and tricks.
The free online workshops are on:
– Wednesday April 14, 2021 at 9am
– Wednesday April 21, 2021 at 12pm
– Wednesday April 28, 2021 at 3pm
Sign up for whichever one is most convenient for you!
