Household Hazardous Waste Collection


The Monroe County Department of Environmental Services, the Towns of Chili, Gates, Riga and Wheatland and the Villages of Churchville and Scottsville will hold an appointment-only Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) collection at the Town of Gates Highway Department located at 475 Trabold Road, on Saturday, April 30, 2022, from 7:45 am to 12:00 pm.

  • Oil-based & Latex Paint (for 1/3 gallon or less of latex paint: discard lid, add and mix kitty litter, let dry, place can in trash)
  • Wood Stain & Preservatives

Road Closure: 490 Eastbound Ramp @ 259

Beginning Wednesday, September 21 the NYSDOT will be closing the ramp connecting Route 259 to I-490 eastbound traffic to accommodate a bridge repair project over the train tracks just east of this ramp. Additionally, they will be installing a crossover that will reduce both eastbound and westbound traffic to a single lane between Exit 4 and just east of the Paul Road bridge. This work is anticipated to last until December.

There will be roughly a two week overlap between this work and NYSDOT work to the west along State Route 36, meaning there will be two consecutive I-490 eastbound on-ramps closed during this time. The official detour for motorists to follow is along Route 33 to connect with I-490 eastbound traffic in the Town of Gates.

Notice of Road Closure – Brook Road

The Town of Chili Highway Department intends to close Brook Road approximately 2000′ west of the intersection with Scottsville Rd. for culvert replacement work.

Date of Closure: September 19, 2022 from 7:00am to September 23, 2022 at 7:00pm.

Note: The road will remain open to local traffic only up to the closing on both the east and west approaches.
