Wood Chip and Compost Information

Click here for printer-friendly version

The Town of Perinton has free wood chips and compost available in bulk for Town residents in both the spring and fall of each year.  Wood chips and compost will be available from September 7 through September 28  (while supplies last) at the following three locations:

  • Perinton Park on O'Connor Road in the lower parking area
  • Rt. 31 Park & Ride on Courtney Drive **Replacing the Egypt Park location**
  • Rt. 96 Park & Ride on Rt. 96 in Bushnell's Basin


Wood chips and compost are made available as part of Perinton's ongoing yard waste recycling program.  All tree, leaf and brush debris collected weekly by Perinton highway crews is ground/mulched for reuse. Making this material available for reuse saves landfill space and provides a valuable commodity for Town of Perinton residents.

Please note: Wood chips and compost made available through this program are intended for Town of Perinton residents only.  Commercial contractors are asked to refrain from removing wood chips from the distribution points.  If anyone witnesses a contractor removing wood chips from one of the sites, please contact the Town of Perinton Highway Department at (585)223-5115 with a license plate number or company name so we may contact them.
