E-Waste Policy: Effective January 1, 2013
Beginning January 1, 2013, the Town/Village of East Rochester has instituted new collection rules pertaining to all electronic waste in order to comply with the new state wide electronic waste collecting law. As part of this new law, landfills will no longer be allowed to accept any electronic waste collected by the Town/Village of East Rochester at their disposal sites.
As of January 1, 2013, any form of electronic waste placed at the curb for collection for either regular pick up as well as during bulk pick up, will incur a fee of $25.00 per item if collected by the Department of Public Works (DPW). Any such disposed electronic waste items will be will be tagged with a yellow sticker and left at the curb by the regular refuse or bulk refuse collection crew, and a separate collection crew will be back in the afternoon on the next regular workday to collect those electronic waste items which still remain at the curb. Upon collection, these items will be brought to the DPW Garage, where we will have an electronic waste collection facility. We have partnered with SUNNKING Electronics Recycling to comply with this new law.
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.
Examples of Electronic Waste (E-Waste) are: Computers (towers, laptops, PDA’s, Tablets), Monitors (CRT, LCD, LED), Printers, Scanners, Copiers, Fax machines, Televisions, VCR’s, CD/DVD players, Stereo equipment, Cell phones, Telephones and anything else with a plug.
The Village of East Rochester has in effect a law which provides an incentive to owners of multi-family dwellings for converting those structures to single-family usage.
There are several multi-family dwellings in the Village, generally rental property, which were originally built as single-family homes. The goal of the Village Board is to incent as many property owners as possible to return these homes to their original single-family use. The results should have positive benefits to our greater community. Restoring those homes to single-family use results in a more valuable piece of property. Single-family homes in the Village continue to appreciate in value, in most cases, at a higher rate than multi-family properties.
The owner of "de-converted" property under this incentive can select one of the following rebate options:
- a. An amount equal to the lesser of the property owner’s actual Village tax bill or $750.00 for a period of ten years following completion of the de-conversion of the subject property to a single-family dwelling; or
- b. Payment of a lump sum of $7,500.00 upon completion of the de-conversion of the subject property to a single-family dwelling.
Please see our Deconversion Incentive page for more information and documentaion.

The Town/Village of East Rochester is pleased and excited to announce that it has been awarded $500,000 through the New York Main Street grant program. Funding is provided through New York State Homes and Community Renewal (HCR) and will be used to assist with the rehabilitation and revitalization of numerous commercial and residential units in the mixed-use downtown business district along Main Street and West Commercial Street. In the coming weeks, the Town/Village will conduct outreach in the target area by developing and distributing informational materials to market program availability and explain requirements for participation in the program. Public informational meetings will be scheduled within the community to present information and answer questions.
