 City of Rochester 

News Release

(Friday, Jan. 6, 2017) - Mayor Lovely A. Warren announced that the City is providing free holiday tree recycling services at five drop-off sites through Jan. 31.

“Holiday trees bring many of us happiness and joy during the holiday season. By recycling trees, we can turn holiday joy into spring blossoms and give back to the Earth,” said Mayor Warren. “Creating a greener city helps create safer, more vibrant neighborhoods, better educational opportunities for our children, and more jobs for our citizens.”

One drop-off site is located in each quadrant:


• Southwest: Genesee Valley Park tennis courts, opposite 1355 Genesee St. Extension;

• Southeast: Cobbs Hill Park, Lake Riley Lodge east parking lot, Culver Road and Norris Drive;

• Northeast: Norton Village, opposite 341 Waring Road;

• Northwest: Charlotte, Estes Street, opposite Abbott's Ice Cream parking lot;

Trees may also be dropped off at the Materials Giveback Program Center, located near the corner of Colfax and Ferrano Streets. Trees are chipped and the resulting mulch is available to the public in the spring at no charge.
