Monroe County Executive Adam Bello recently announced the reopening of Ecopark, 10 Avion Drive, Chili, with some restrictions.

“I’m pleased we’re able to reopen the Ecopark and begin offering recycling services to our residents again,” Bello said. “Making sure we properly dispose of waste materials is an important step toward environmental sustainability. I encourage residents to take advantage of the recycling services we offer and to please be patient with our staff as we grapple with new pandemic-related restrictions that may cause some longer wait times.”

All Ecopark customers must wear a mask or face covering on the facility grounds. Customers dropping off household hazardous waste or pharmaceuticals are asked to remain inside their vehicles; county staff will remove these items from their cars.

All other recycling stations at the park are self-serve and residents will unload their items. Anyone unable to unload their materials should bring someone who can.

Household hazardous waste is accepted by appointment only. Deputies from the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office are on-site for traffic control, to regulate building access and oversee pharmaceutical collections.

The recycling facility is open from 1 to 6:30 p.m. on Wednesdays and 7:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays, except July 4.
