Important Recycling Program Information

The new Town of Rochester curbside cart trash and recycling program originally scheduled to begin January 2015 will now start Friday, February 6, 2015. This is due to delays in the delivery of contractor vehicles.

New trash and recycle carts will be delivered in the middle of January to each resident. However, these new carts should not be put out for collection until the February 6 start date. Carts put out before that date will not be collected. Residents should continue to place recycling out in the current manner until the Friday February 6th date.

Additional information will be mailed to all residents in mid-January outlining the new program.
