The Town of Irondequoit encourages residents to compost leaves and other waste. The following publications offer easy-to-follow guidance for back yard composting:
Home Composting (Cornell Waste Management Institute)
Building Bins and Boxes for Compost (Cornell Cooperative Extension)
Leaf Drop Off
(October 6 - December 16)
Residents can drop off leaves in paper bags at the parking lot of 117 Kings Highway North (south of the Irondequoit Youth Ballpark Complex at the Town Hall campus) from October 6 through December 16 from dawn until dusk.
Please note: This is for residents only, no contractors allowed. NO plastic bags can be left behind. Please remove leaves from plastic bags and take them away.
While the disposal options listed above are preferred, some waste haulers will pick up leaves and compost them. They must be containerized and put out according to your hauler's directions.
Please contact your waste hauler to see if they offer this service. Waste hauler contact information
