Some Upcoming Dates …

Posted on March 7, 2016 at 3:35 PM by PattiAnn Schultz

  • April 16th = Household Hazardous Waste Collection

The Monroe County Department of Environmental Services (DES), the Town of Webster and the Town of Penfield has joined forces to hold an appointment-only Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) collection on Saturday, April 16, 2016.  This collection will take place at the Penfield Department of Public Works, 1607 Jackson Road, from 7:45 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

Most HHW (paint, flammables and other chemicals from home-use) is safe when used and stored properly. When they become unwanted and are disposed of improperly, these household wastes can become environmental hazards.

To ensure safety and reduce waiting times, appointments are required at all HHW collections.  Appointments for this HHW collection will be accepted until April 15th. To schedule an appointment, Webster residents should call 872-1443 (Monday thru Thursday, 7:00 a.m.–3:30 p.m.); Penfield residents can call 340-8710 or go on-line to http://www.monroecounty.gov/hhw to schedule your appointment. This Household Hazardous Waste collection is open to all Monroe County residents. Waste from businesses will not be accepted.

  • April 30th = Pharmaceutical Waste Pickup

There will be a pharmaceutical waste pickup at the Wastewater Treatment Plant, 226 Phillips Road, on Saturday, April 30, 2016, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Any unused, unwanted or expired medication is taken for disposal. No appointment is necessary. 

If you do not feel comfortable with your personal information on the bottles, you can remove the pills and put them in a plastic bag for us to dispose of. 

Also, just a reminder, there is now a CVS Drug Collection unit at the Webster Town Hall.  This permanent pharmaceutical waste drop box can be found inside the Webster Town Hall, located at the Police Department entrance, 1000 Ridge Road, during regular business hours of Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.

Like with the pharmaceutical waste pickup, items accepted at the drop box include any unused, unwanted or expired medication such as prescriptions, prescription patches, prescription medication, prescription ointments, over-the-counter medications, vitamins, samples and medications for pets. 

Items that are NOT accepted include hydrogen peroxide, inhalers, aerosol cans, ointments, lotions, or liquids, thermometers, needles (sharps) and medication from businesses or clinics.

  • June 11th = OPENING DAY of Webster’s Joe Obbie Farmers’ Market

Beginning on June 11th and going through October, come to Webster’s Joe Obbie Farmers’ Market!  The Market is located in the Webster Town Center Plaza and is open each Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. There will be fresh fruit, vegetables, meats, cheese, baked goods, jams, honey, maple syrup, spice blends, plants, herbs, flowers, and so much more!

  • June 18th = Summer Celebration

Come to the Town of Webster’s Summer Celebration on Saturday, June 18, 2016!  This annual event will once again be held at the Webster Recreation Center, located at 1350 Chiyoda Drive. Games and crafts start at 4:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. with laser tag, face painting, inflatables, and games of chance.

After the overwhelming success last year, The Waterfront Art Festival will be returning to North Ponds Park on Saturday and Sunday, July 30th and 31st, from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. each day.

The festival will feature different artists and vendors from around the county. Art and other high quality, handmade crafts in all price ranges will be available. The artists will set up booths around North Ponds Park and it is a very walk able route for all.

There will be more information about vendors, events and parking as the festival approaches.
