The town of Perinton will have free wood chips and compost available in bulk for town residents to pick up through June 4 at the lower Perinton Park Parking Lot, 99 O’Connor Road; the Egypt Park parking lot, 7 Victor Road, Fairport; and the Park & Ride lot on Route 96 in Bushnell’s Basin.
Wood chips and compost are made available as part of Perinton’s ongoing yard waste recycling program. All tree, brush debris and leaves collected by Perinton highway crews is ground and chipped for reuse in a cooperative effort with Waste Management at High Acres Landfill. Making this material available for reuse saves landfill space and provides a valuable commodity for Town of Perinton residents.
Wood chips and compost made available through this program are intended for town of Perinton residents’ use. Commercial contractors are asked to refrain from removing woodchips or compost from the distribution points. If anyone witnesses a contractor removing wood chips from one of the sites, contact the town of Perinton Department of Public Works at 585-223-5115 with a license plate number or company name.
